Who could have predicted what happened to the Lacuna Cabal Book Club as they endeavoured to read the Epic of Gilgamesh in its original Cuneiform?

"Gender is not a science, and biology does not make -- or unmake -- a woman."



Aline Irwin, who is way overdo for her own post, would approve of this petition on behalf of the athlete Caster Semenya.

So for Aline's sake I urge you all to take a look at it and to consider signing it.



(This bookplate was designed for Aline Irwin, somewhat androgynous member of the Lacuna Cabal Montreal Young Women's Book Club.)

Hi Mr Dixon! Thanks for dropping a comment on my blog. Can't believe that a real author actually did that. Anyway, I love the Lacuna Cabal SO MUCH. I think it is the most hilarious (yet at the same time brilliant) book i've ever read. Your jokes (such as when Dumuzi became Dumizu) made me laugh out loud, something that hardly any book ever did to me.
Picked the book up at a book fair because i remember someone recommending it to me and was so grateful that i did. Anyway what race does Dumuzi belong to? such a weird name it is.
