Calendar Girl is a game of two halves, two interweaving strands. One is your standard lesbian private investigator story. The other is a long, lyrical lament for the Woman with the Kelly McGillis Body. And they're both gripping, and, while they seemingly start off in parallel, you find them gradually drawing closer, until you really don't want to finish the book because you know something awful is going to happen...

I'll be looking out for further books in the Saz Martin series. I liked Saz, and I like the way Duffy writes.


The nuns used to say that despair is the greatest sin. Judas was condemned not because he betrayed Jesus, but because, having betrayed, he despaired. Apparently God can forgive anything but despair. Clever God.

But I wasn't thinking about Judas then, the cock crowed thrice and I chose to believe. I made that leap of faith, I watched as she turned water into wine. I put all my eggs into the one basket and handed them over to her.

She makes a mean omelette.
