"It's Minx, Petra Minx."

To Love Sex and Cunning Linguistics

Marion Leigh

In this collection of verse, Marion gives free rein to her imagination and her love of language. As she explains, it came about in a strange way. ‘I was in the U.K. one December, suffering from a streaming head cold. My body was in terrible shape, but my brain lit up under the influence of maximum doses of over-the-counter medication. Some of the poems are love poems, some are light-hearted romps, others rather more risqué… all of them play with words. Make of them what you will.’
