Review

Praise for The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine 'The combination of sexual awakening, secret societies, and lost technology, wrapped up in Kneen's loving treatment of her subject, character, and story, makes for a remarkably pleasing read. The conclusion is wildly imaginative and surprisingly satisfying. The characters are delightfully varied, including many from groups that are underrepresented in erotic fiction, and each is more fascinating than the last.'--Publishers Weekly [starred review] 'Unabashedly erotic... Reading about Holly reading James Salter, Angela Carter, and a slew of others and finding the experience so wholeheartedly transformative makes the reading list in the back of the book irresistible....Offers a keen appreciation of the erotic writing of others.'--Kirkus Praise for Uncertain Grace'A highly provocative read that masterfully offers thoughtful speculation on the future of technology, memory and sexuality.'--Books+Publishing; 'Folding sensitive threads of erotica into mind-bending speculative fiction, Krissy Kneen's latest novel is an ambitious genre hybrid that addresses both morality and mortality from unique vantage points...She proceeds with sensitivity, sincerity and, most of all, curiosity...With its page-turning clarity, her writing is as compassionate and empowering as it is edgy and provocative.'--The Australian; 'A story in which science offers creepy solutions for unmanageable problems. This book requires a ghost-story warning: it will unsettle...A beautiful, dark read.' --Listener; 'Speculative fiction that twines science fiction with erotica with philosophical questions of gender and sex...endlessly curious and inventive, provocative and inspiring.'--Sydney Morning Herald --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

From one of Australia's most daring literary voices, An Uncertain Grace is a moving, insightful and imaginative exploration of gender and sexual politics. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
