Pre-Book Review: The Suburban Bitch
This self-published book by Miss Billi Wong Tiller produces a paradox right off the bat, or the cover as it were. The so-called "Suburban Bitch" title transposed with a picture of a smiling black woman and an equally jovial white missy in a matching skirt is confusing enough. Add to that her surname with the apparent Chinese middle name and I'm not sure quite what's what here.
Flip over to the back cover and the confusion intensifies. The author, Billi herself (I believe that's her on the front cover as well), is donned in what looks like traditional African regalia and looks anything but a suburban bitch or a bitch at all.
But this is fiction, right? Sure, but then how do you explain this on her dedication page:
Dun dun dun dun! SATAN! Maybe she's into that voodoo shit. With "Goat" as a sobriquet you'd hope to hell she was.
I have a feeling that this is going to be neither In Search of Goodpussy or Tally's Corner nor Black Muscle but if there's any truth to the fact that she loves Beelzebub then by gawd there better be no part of the Coz in this book or else I'll be gravely disappointed.
