Feb 15, 2018One doesn't want to give oneself a one star review, it doesn't look good to give oneself a five star review, however lulu seem not to allow one to back out of any review, so here is a disclaimer. Girl's Vore involved informants, e. g., a medical secretary, a family who liaise with psychiatric hospital authorities by volunteering to give institutionalised adolescents a relatively normal domestic existence, a paramedic, a former psychiatric patient.....all face-to-face confidential, dark-corner-of-the-restaurant conversations. Thanx to all these people, no-one wishes to be identified. My attitude is - one of these days someone is likely to exploit the same data, & they won't be so likely to donate to protest sites like the current Grow Heathrow, or anarchist social centres, or anarka-feminist groups....Girl's Vore does have an I-never-thought-I'd-write-this-sort-of-thing feel about it for me. Friends' reactions made me happy, it was fun to write. On the other hand, I had reached a... More > point where I didn't want to publish it. Sorority reactions were enough....I'd asked an illustrator to come up with some art in response to the text (Penelope Parsnip), she did, over a longish period of time.....then it was like, "Oh publish the book Poppi, Penelope's art's brilliant!"....a website designer friend was willing to format the book, interspersing the illustrations amongst the text.....but the formatter/website designer began also to desire anonymity ~ so she is Ursula Onion, for the purpose of this paragraph. Ursula comments, "We all live in a forest in the middle of nowhere, no electricity, it'll be ages before anyone hears from us if it's to do with the internet." So basically, everyone is anonymous, pseudonymous, can only be contacted with difficulty. We thought of a treasurer for extra confusion. There is some desire to say when this book was completed: by February 2010, around 7 or 8 years ago. It's a simple feeling that publications & people surging in the past 8 to 10 years, were NOT in my mind ~ just in case a reader would have thought so. In February 2010 I had put Girl's Vore solely into a guy's memory stick, he gave the memory stick on loan to a girlfriend of mine, she lost it, & my laptop went into an incredible self-destruct inactivation phase. The book seemed lost, but he had actually printed it out ~ he had such a mass of other print-outs it came up to his waist ~ therefore it all went back into another stick, taking years to do so, unfortunately.< Less
Jan 22, 2018Read this hard copy/printed out, being a member of this woman's sorority....it's so immersive, an embarrassing display of secrets medical people want to keep to themselves.....the story is partly that some nurses decide to make a bit of money, creating a kind of Medical Showtime. Rather educational, it will be categorised as totally adult....sort of guiltily wanted my teenage children to read it......my 14-year-old boy almost did - left the book 'up' on the computer (from 'Poppi's' memory stick, as well as having it hard copy) in my living room, turned to do something, was busying myself with housework, heard screams of laughter - o god he's reading that text!!! The book is a bit like what that conveys. Some background - heroine Nooshie is breaking up with her obsessive girlfriend - embarrassingly declaring her love for her during feminist meetings - when she is offered a job which exploits her knowledge of secret tunnels between psychiatric hospitals, or psychiatric NHS sectors. All... More > of this is depicted scarily graphically, if you don't believe such things exist in the NHS & you're a nurse, you may be in for a shock. The last few paragraphs of the book takes quite technical psychiatric knowledge of various conditions to have been written at all, making any more complex a synopsis difficult to render on Lulu. Have a dictionary by your side, or easily accessed via your smartphone, or both - there's still a 1950s Thesaurus on this reader's bedroom dressing table.< Less
