Ish Madigan is a feminist academic writing a thesis on computer games. Jake Newhouse is a full-time management consultant and part-time pickup artist. They’re not exactly best friends. But when Jake’s latest crush — a brilliant Danish librarian — doesn’t respond to his usual seduction techniques, he knows he needs help. Jake asks Ish to coach him in feminist-friendly flirtation. He’ll pay. And Ish needs the money. So, what’s stopping her? Oh, you know, just ethics, morals and every fibre of her being.
Banging Denmark is a swinging satire on the men who claim to understand the ‘female mind’ and the online culture that inspires them.
