Welcome to oneoffkisses.com
I warmly invite you to pucker up and peruse my site,
By way of a brief introduction my name is Lana Citron. Originally from Ireland, I have lived in London for more years than I’ll ever admit to. I am a writer, the author of five novels, a non-fiction book, short stories, radio plays (broadcast on BBC Radio 4), poetry and film scripts. I regularly perform at various literary salons and festivals in London and across England, (you may even have seen me at Glastonbury!). A trained actress, I have also performed as a stand up comedian; an experience I truthfully, (albeit painfully) recreated in my comic detective novel, The Brodsky Touch.
Also as you will no doubt have guessed, I am passionate about the kiss – a most mercurial gesture that affects every facet of our lives. Such is my fascination my 6th book and first non-fiction is a comprehensive exploration of the kiss.
A Compendium of Kisses was published in February 2010 and has since spread to Europe and across to the States.
‘an intellectual and indulgent treat; every dip will prompt a smile, a shock or perhaps even a thrill. This is a wonderful and comprehensive book on all things osculatory.’ The Economist
