Losing It

Ranjit Bolt

A modern day Canterbury Tale! Frustrated Lucy can't seem to lose her virginity, she's thwarted at every turn by useless men, witches and ghosts. The book is written in rhyming couplets -

If you get the rhythm, and feel the beat
Then you're sure to have a treat!


Extract

I give you leave - no I demand
That you secure your cherry's loss,
shake off the stupid albatross
that's hanging round your nubile neck-
Was I, at your age? Was I heck!
