Most of the reviews of The End Of Mr Y made comments about the deconstructionism and transgressive sex. Maybe as a life-long SF reader I am too steeped in perversity, but the sex didn't seem notably transgressive to me - a bit of light to moderate bondage and some role-play where the heroine (ST's familiar Mary-Sue) and her boy-friend pretend he's paying her for sex.
The question that has nagged at me through 4 of Ms. T's books (including one of the semi-suppressed detective novels) is to what extent her viewpoint character is her or what she would like to be like. Having read this http://www.danutakean.com/blog/?p=291, it seems that it is more that she did have a semi-exotic upbringing, rather than having a dull middle class one and wishing that she had an exotic one.
t__m__i read the first chapter of the detective novel, and said 'does the annoying woman get killed?'. Sadly no, she is the detective (creative writing teacher by day, amateur detective by night, 'Murder, She Critiqued'??). The plot - involving cults, raves, designer drugs, mad academics - is definitely on a par with those of 'Law And Order - Ludicrous Crimes Squad'. As with all British detective novels it is hard not to imagine it as an ITV drama, and to imagine the author imagining it as an ITV drama.
I think she makes a better SF writer than a detective writer or warrior against capitalism. Give the woman a Hugo, stat!
