A modern-day reinterpretation of the Ovid's myth of Iphis, it concerns two sisters, Anthea and Imogen (Midge) living in Inverness. Imogen works in the marketing department of a large company producing bottled water, Anthea is on work experience in the same department but then falls in love with Robin, a female eco-warrior. It also vividly portrays her sister Imogen and her joyful emergence from low self-esteem. The text has one of the most remarkable sex scenes in modern fiction that includes no reference to body parts whatsoever.
The cover drawing on the first edition is by Tracey Emin and entitled Self-portrait as a Small Bird.
