Between Careers, Three Sydney Novels


Between Careers looks at how sex functions in contemporary society - how it is bought and sold and conceptualised. It belongs to that elusive genre, intelligent erotica … Baranay’s prose is precise, clear and tends towards the epigrammatic. … The narrative moves quickly and bristles with sharp social observations. …The result is stylish, provocative and wonderfully different.
