Auf Wunsch ihrer Freundin Brigitte fährt Inge mit in das Frauenferienzentrum. Brigitte hofft, dort endlich in Ruhe mit ihrer Freundin über ihre Beziehung reden zu können. Doch stattdessen beginnt sie einen heißen Flirt mit einer anderen Kursteilnehmerin. Und teilt Inge mit, dass neue Freiheiten ausprobiert werden müssten. Inge, wegen ihrer langen Beine von Brigitte zärtlich „meine Giraffe" genannt, tobt vor Eifersucht. Doch der Schein trügt... und erst viele Sexturbulenzen später klärt sich die Situation.
Gewohnt rasant und amüsant schreibt Wöhe über Beziehungs- und Gefühlsverwicklungen. In den genau gezeichneten Charakteren kann sich die Leserin augenzwinkernd wiederfinden.
„Sandra Wöhe schreibt in einer lockeren Art und Weise, die frau nur fesseln kann. […] Sandra Wöhe [hat] einen erstklassigen Debütroman auf den Markt gebracht, der lauthals nach einer Fortsetzung verlangt!", schrieb frau bei gaypeople.de. Hier kommt nun keine direkte Fortsetzung, dafür ein neuer, spritziger Roman. Es darf wieder gelacht werden.

Isabel, vom Spiel der Liebe bitter enttäuscht, führt im Hinterhaus einer Berliner Zweizimmerwohnung ein Schattendasein, als sie die wohlhabende Johanna kennenlernt. Im ersten gemeinsamen Urlaub auf der Ferieninsel Madeira meint es das Glück mit den beiden ungleichen Frauen gut, zögerlich traut Isabel wieder zärtlichen Gefühlen. Doch dann wird sie von der dunklen Seite ihrer Vergangenheit eingeholt: Plötzlich taucht die totgeglaubte Agnes vor ihren Augen auf, eine längst ad acta gelegte Affäre scheint mehr zu wissen, als ihr lieb ist, und dann steht auch noch Johannas Ex vor der Tür. Zu viele Figuren beanspruchen im Monopoly des Lebens den Platz an der Sonne, und einmal mehr baut Isabel auf die extravaganten Straßen: Sie führen an den Rand der höchsten Steilküste Europas, direkt in die Tiefe.

Beziehungsthriller im Stil von Celia Fremlin. Spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite präsentiert Regina Nössler eine Geschiche, in der die Grenzen liebevoller Hingabe und subtiler Bedrohung kunstvoll verwischt werden. Die Autorin macht vor dem Abgrund verstörender Liebe nicht Halt.

Smashing for Tuesdays. It's been ages that I've read such a funny but partly sad lesbian novel." (amazon.de). Emotional confusion on a Tuesday. On a Tuesday morning the protagonist wakes up next to her partner Friederike. The love she felt, has gone. Will it reappear? A strange day and detailed retrospectives on the current and many earlier love stories. An enthralling read. Wonder how it will continue on Wednesday…
Regina Nösslers latest novel presents itself quite nastily: the protagonist wakes up, it's Tuesday morning, next to her lies her long term partner, and love has gone. What's to do? Get up, get away, what's next? By now even the most sceptical reader, who thinks "absurd, unrealistic", is drawn into the story and fascinated: the story turns out to be a wise and abysmal reckoning with lesbian life in its forties. A racy story, a brilliant read!

Claudia Wessel "In a threesome"
Stories. 256 pages, french softcover, format: 19 x 11,5 cm, price: 7,90 Euro, 2004, second edition 2005, ISBN 3-88769-703-0

The eight stories are situated in the city-setting of modern singles and couples and can be read as an erotic thriller. The emotional life of the protagonists is characterized by lust for murder and desire, erotic euphoria and sudden crashes.

Without romantic imaginations of love and passion these stories tell about the traps of love and the dark sides of sex Wessel clarifies that sex is supposed to be liberated to dispassion but despite of the omnipresent „anything goes" it hasn't lost any power. Erotic involvements and sexual experiments in the most different constellations often find a surprising end. The deserted wife, the sadistic sales agent living a double life, the lonesome tango-dancer willing to mate are only some of the protagonists whose life overbalances by sudden incidents and unexpected turnarounds. Exciting and dramatic, but also winking the author tells us of wishes and emotional roller-coasters, hate and exaltation, disillusion and loneliness. In a clear, often lapidary style in connection with colourful descriptions of daydreams and fantasies she succeeds with an extraordinary lively narration which allows a deeper insight on what exists subliminal. Like the longing of the protagonists breaks into their daily life, Wessel undermines the expectations of the reader and suddenly nothing is predictable...

Claudia Wessel, Affair, Novel, 224 pages, Eur 7,90, ISBN 3-88769-713
A woman has an affair with a married man. First, it's just about sex. They meet in hotels of their town, in posh dosshouses. If the woman walks through town, there are more and more places where she left something of herself. Dark childhood memories intermingle with the affair and one day she falls in love… Like in her novel "In a Threesome", Wessel describes abysmal sexuality, partly drastically direct but always honest and realistic. She accompanies the emotional realm of her protagonists, far from romantic ideas of love. Even in times of the trendy "anything goes", sex hasn't lost anything of its brisance

Paulina Schulz, Waterworld, 240 s., ISBN 3-88769-706-5. Short Stories.
She writes about sex and silence, about water, whisky and free jazz. Her figures love, suffer, ridicule themselves and discover romance in hard sex. Her texts are rhythmic, heavily visually influenced, sponged with water as a metaphor for sensuality and danger …
"She writes about people, who prefer a ride on the tram in Berlin or Leipzig to a breakfast in Paris. At one point her language swings, at another her clearly set syncopes fall apart. The dialogues are short and vigorous her work is has a heavy visual influence and all that causes a unique intensity, a flow … It continuously turns out that love contains irony, distance and closeness and pain and voluptuousness." (Svatopluk Macourek)
"Born in Poland in the year 1973, the author exquisitely draws a panorama of erotic and love with just a few, differentiated lines."(dpa)
