View all copies of this ISBN edition:

A girl draws a moustache on her lover's upper lip. A boy dresses as his mother for the police. A gathering of women don butcher's aprons. Lady Caroline Lamb dresses as a pageboy for Lord Byron. Prime Minister Alfred Deakin is given a lovely purple dress. A traveller from the Caribbean makes an ill-fated assignation. String of Pearls is a designer collection, bringing together some of our finest established authors and boldest new writers, to write about cross-dressing and push against the rigid boundaries by which we fence our desires. The stories are both provocative and subtle, skirting around sexual ambiguities, clothing as fetish, uniform as ritual and disguise as a vehicle for unveiling hidden truths. Contributors include Paul Allatson, Tony Ayres, Belinda Chayko, Gary Dunne, Nick Enright, Catherine Lazaroo, Gillian Mears, Fiona McGregor, Louis Nowra, Dorothy Porter, John A. Scott, Chad Taylor, Alana Valentine and William Yang.
