The Scandalous Life of Sasha Torte
(Harper Collins 2017)
‘Melbourne author Lesley Truffle gives the young female protagonists extraordinary adventures and social mobility. Her humour is droll, her tone arch, her satire pervasive … These narratives toy with and partially reject the courtship plot conventionally offered to female readers. They also ask whether the modern woman must behave and think like a man.’
