about plans to reissue a deviant sex-filled novel that Lynne Cheney wrote in 1981.
Well, it seems Lynne was none too pleased with this, and is now blocking the reissue because "it's not her best work".
A publisher has cancelled plans to reissue a racy novel by Lynne Cheney, wife of U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney, after she said the book did not represent "her best work."
New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Group (U.S.A.), was going to reprint Sisters, an historical romance published in 1981 that includes brothels, attempted rapes and a lesbian love affair.[...]
Liberals have often mocked Sisters, noting Cheney is a longtime conservative and President George W. Bush supports a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
The novel was the subject of a recent satirical performance at the New York Theatre Workshop, with actors reading such passages as: "Let us go away together, away from the anger and imperatives of men. There will be only the two of us and we shall linger through long afternoons of sweet retirement."
"In the evenings I shall read to you while you work your cross-stitch in the firelight. And then we shall go to bed, our bed, my dearest girl."
Sisters has long been out of print and is not mentioned in Cheney's biography on the White House website. In 2001, she told a New York Times newspaper reporter she couldn't even remember the plot.
