Featured Book: Perverse Wonderland by Jennifer Harrison

About the book:
Perverse Wonderland is a playful dark comedy and a romantic adventure tale for anyone who has ever loved and lost, or loved and found again. Jennifer Harrison's debut novel gives a voice to the type of women who, instead of waiting to be saved, can only rescue themselves. When our American heroine is abandoned by her English ''gentleman'' in a strange land of Pimm's and Jack the Ripper slumlords, the fairy tale is turned on its head after kissing Prince Charming turns him into an ''arse.'' This novel will have you swiftly flipping pages to keep up with the ongoing conflicts between our irreverent redhead's heart, mind and libido as she interacts with a memorable cast of characters including the romantic Irish poet, the Jewish American Princess, and the bizarre Russian painter. With its appeal to strong women and the men who love them (and sometimes leave them), Perverse Wonderland is for fans of an culture-clashing American Bridget Jones or a modern, bawdy Sex and the City set in Lewis Carroll's fantastical wonderland of Oxford. If you have ever wondered how to repair your own heart in the aftermath of a break-up… If you have ever struggled with trusting yourself to love… If you have more than once wished your former love might live to regret… Perverse Wonderland will resonate deeply.
