A dark, compelling tale of sex, guilt and morality, exploring the complexity of date rape, from the author of 'Kissing England'.
A He Said/She Said novel about date-rape, that tells the dramatic story of a compulsive, obsessive, profoundly carnal love affair between a rich North London princess and a boishy Anglo-Irishman: a love affair that somehow ends up in the gladiatorial arena of Court Number 18, the Old Bailey.
But it isn't just a courtroom drama, nor is it just a highly sexed love story. In its examination of rape and the contemporary lynch law we apply to love and lust, it offers a startling new look at the savage and eternal war between the sexes.
As boy and girl fight with the guilt of their own longings, 'The Cheek Perforation Dance' becomes a startlingly honest, often unsettling examination of a very modern romance.
