Binnie Kirshenbaum's first novel, "On Mermaid Avenue" (1993) reads like the script for a female buddy movie featuring two birds of a feather for whom too much is rarely enough. We first meet Kirshenbaum's buddies, Monarose and Edie, the mermaids of the tale, in their coed years at a New York City university. Very early on in their friendship, Monarose, the more sexually accomplished of the two, uses a banana from the corner fruit stand to demonstrate to Edie how to give head, the sine qua non of all good sex.
