Full text not available from this repository.


In his first work of fiction, artist Jake Chapman slashes the romantic novel down to bare bone and constructs his own disfigured version from the slaughtered remains.

Chlamydia Love is gifted her very own tropical island by her fiancé, where she develops a grudging adoration for its real owner, the enigmatic bestselling author, Helmut Mandragorass. A battle between her fiancé and Helmut ensues, for ownership of the island and ultimately for the love of Chlamydia.

This mercilessly subversive tale is illustrated by Chlamydia's watercolours entitled Visions of Morass, images inspired by the island as she struggles with her feelings of agony and ecstasy.
