Until recently, Julia hadn't had sex in three years.
* a one-night stand is accusing her of breaking his penis;
* a sexually confident lesbian is making eyes at her over confrontational modern art;
* and she's wondering whether trimming her pubes makes her a bad feminist.
Julia's about to learn that she's been looking for love - and satisfaction - in all the wrong places...

'Without a doubt, In at the Deep End, by Kate Davies, is the afterparty book for anyone looking to extend their Fleabag fun. Newly published, Davies' book is raucous, sexy, poignant and smart, and is definitely the most fun you will have with lesbian BDSM short of doing it yourself' - Hadley Freeman, The Guardian
