Created by Stella Duffy
Back in the 1990s the British government came up with this bright idea of encouraging those on the dole to set up their own businesses. So SAZ MARTIN tells them she's going to become a private eye.
So now the South London "dyke detective" (her publisher's description) is ready for action, with or without her best gal Molly by her side. Not that Molly's some bimbo -- hell, no, she's a doctor.
Supposedly quite good reads; raunchy, witty tales of fabulous one-liners, lyrical undertones and sexual steam with a "film noir edge".
Saz's creator, Stella Duffy was born in London, grew up in New Zealand, and has lived back in London since 1986. She has written twelve novels. The Room of Lost Things and State of Happiness were both longlisted for the Orange Prize, and the latter won Stonewall Writer of the Year 2008. She has written thirty-five short stories, including several for BBC Radio 4, and won the 2002 CWA Short Story Dagger for Martha Grace. Her eight plays include an adaptation of Medea for Steam Industry, Prime Resident and Immaculate Conceit for the National Youth Theatre, and the verbatim piece A Guest on Other People’s Ground for the National Theatre’s Right Angles platform season. In addition to her writing work she is a performer and theatre director.
