Litgeek, writer, academic and critic, endlessly fascinated; reads, thinks, listens and talks far more than is good for her. Ex-anorexic, ex-ME, queer, kinky, nosy; has a PhD in the cultural meanings attached to women, food and the body and a general obsession with pulling apart the more damaging bits of culture until people notice how fucked up we all are. Purveyor of uncomfortable truths. Loves London, sushi, social history, old houses with big windows, being a redhead and John Wilmot Earl of Rochester. Lives in the real world here. Needs more sleep.
