Lee Harlem Robinson is a fictional character created for the blog ‘Trying to Throw My Arms Around the World’ by Hannelore Arbyn. In daily blog posts, Lee narrates the story of how she ended up in Hong Kong. 'Dirty Pleasure' and the novel ‘Come and Go’ pick up where ‘Trying to Throw my Arms Around the World’ stops and describe Lee’s dramatic adventures in romance in ‘that other city that never sleeps’.
Hannelore Arbyn is a thirty-three year old Belgian who moved to Hong Kong in the fall of 2010. In 2002 she started the lesbian entertainment blog ‘Dykes and the City’ and not long after founded the popular lesbian advice blog ‘The Lesbian Question’. After a blog hiatus of a few years, the withdrawal from dyke drama and the creation of lesbian entertainment became so unbearable, she plunged into the world of blog fiction and invented Lee Harlem Robinson. ‘Come and Go’ is her first novel.

Exotic Romance and Setting.
Hong Kong lifestyle, Gay and Lesbian company, friendship and relationships(and drama, of course), well paced and spicy slice of life, with engagingly developed characters, and a happily ending(if long-undecided) romance that asks for a sequel, particularly to keep enjoying the humorous interactions and banter -all the dialogues actually.
Having never been there, I found the Hong Kong life description appealing enough to make me want to visit and spend a little time. Not sure I could actually live there, though: the pace is fast and the nightlife kinda 'wild', ought to be young and healthy to keep up. ;)
The accompanying piece, "Dirty Pleasure" is, indeed, a pure pleasure to read, too. :)
