from the diary: “Tuesday 7/21/87
“Read Rubyfruit Jungle yesterday. It was funn-ee. Reminded me of Lisa Alther. Why can’t gay male novels be this funny? Dance on My Grave was funny but it had a tragic ending. Also read the latest issue of Blue Unicorn & more of Hayden Carruth’s selected poems …”
Since I so enjoyed Rubyfruit JungleI figured I would read more by Rita Mae Brown. Yet I haven’t. These days she seems to write piles of mysteries with her cat.
