In this vaguely impressionistic and impressionistically vague novella, our heroine, Epifanea Tredwell, travels round Europe (while she still can), whimsically cooking food that may or may not have a connection with her (often undisclosed) locations.
Her sometimes strained communications with her boyfriend back home show she has a lot to think about regarding the life she will or maybe won't be returning to. What effect, if any, will Picnics of Passion, the steamy but terribly-written romp her friend has thrust on her as holiday reading, have on her decision?

I should hold a competition to design a cover.
I think there's a lot more of the ol' genius loci stuff to add to a few chapters.
And at some stage print copies and epub versions of the finished work will be avaiable.
Until then, you're stuck with the poetry.
Red Light Blues
I was sitting at home feeling full of self-pity
So I took a short plane ride to Amsterdam city
To find lots of young ladies so sweet and so pretty,
So charming of figure and face
They were doing their best to give me an erection
By waving their breasts in my general direction —
But turned out to be blokes upon closer inspection —
Something tells me I'm in the wrong place!
When down these dark alleys a young fellow goes, he
Finds many strange windows with glows that are rosy;
But, not wishing to peer in too close or seem nosey,
How is he to know which are men?
Those give-away signs, how come I didn't spot 'em?
Those bulges they have where real ladies ain't got 'em?
But now that I've had a few stuck up my bottom —
Why, I think I might go there again!
After twelve long years, umpteen Fringe performances,
and two five-star reviews on AmazonUK (from total strangers, at that)
being sold from there or direct from Lucidity Books
