Sucking Sherbet LemonsBook - 2010
What do you do when you're fat, 14, obsessed with the Catholic Church, with Doing the Right Thing, with scones and sweets, with other boys and their private parts? Well, if you're Benson, you panic and flee, hiding from the flesh as a novice in a monastery.Out of print for over a decade, Sucking Sherbet Lemons was written in answer to the Thatcher government's Clause 28, which in prohibiting the 'promotion' of homosexuality, in effect mandated official homophobia. A comic epic, Sucking Sherbet Lemons is a warm, funny and bold reminder of just how new sexual tolerance is.
