PRAISE FOR REBECCA BROWN “A strange and wonderful first-person voice emerges from the stories of Rebecca Brown, who strips her language of convention to lay bare the ferocious rituals of love and need.” (The New York Times) “One of the few truly original modern lesbian writers, one who constantly pushes both her own boundaries and those of her readers.” (San Francisco Chronicle) “Watch for her books and hunt down her short stories. She is simply one of the best contemporary lesbian writers around.” (Dorothy Allison) “The straightforward prose style belies Brown’s penchant for brilliant narrative, which at any moment can turn from the gentle and intimate to the violent and bizarre.” (Utne Reader) “A dry, witty, graceful — if savage — gift.” (Mary Gaitskill) “Ripe and imaginative, often funny, and sliding craftily between fact and wishful fantasy.” (The Sunday Times (London)) “America’s only real rock ‘n’ roll schoolteacher.” (Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth)
