AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Did you know that grasshoppers hear with their legs? And a pregnant goldfish is called a twit? Seth Parrot knows hundreds of little facts like these, because his father tells them to him. What Seth doesn't know is- Where do you meet muscular girls? How do you make them fall in love with you? Would a different haircut help? Is credit card fraud a good idea? What on earth is a moonshadow? By the end of the story, Seth will know the answer to four of these questions. They won't come from his father. They'll come from a very wise magazine called Dolly. From the author of Tumble Turn comes a hilarious new novel about muscles, love and a flower-hating Eastern European.' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

Subverting Censorship Through Heteroqueer: How To Do Straight Queerly (And Get Away With It) In the Novels of Doug MacLeod Kate McInally , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Looking Glass , vol. 12 no. 2 2008;
Kate McInally approaches censorship from perspectives often overlooked in censorship discussions: self-censorship and the censorship of evasion. Using two novels by Australian author Doug MacLeod, McInally explores the subtle queering of heteronormative ideologies, the art of, perhaps, gently twisting depictions of sexualities and desires rather than overtly transgressing the expected norms. McInally commends MacLeod's humorous and incisive questioning of those hetero-norms, yet questions some of his editorial decisions, wondering if he has stopped short of the story he really hoped to tell.
