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.
During a decadent weekend in Hong Kong, Lee and her best friend Charlie encounter a slew of interesting characters. One of them is Stevie, a girl who ignites a definite spark in Lee. Can she restore Lee's hope that Hong Kong is not totally void of lesbians?
