Inhaltsangabe: "Dear Miss Maxfield?what I'm really afraid of is that I am a homosexual human being. I wish you were one too but I don't think it's possible there could be so many in one school, do you? ?probably there is only one person who is homosexual in one place at one time and that one person (I am afraid) is me?."
Sixteen-year-old Lynn writers her thirty-seven-year-old English teacher a letter, and they embark on one of the funniest?and saddest?love affairs in fiction: one shrouded in secrecy and guilt. This is the early sixties, years before gay liberation, when all Lynn knows about "lezbos" is that they wear their hair in crew cuts, buy suits like her father's, and sprout mustaches over their upper lips. Lynn, in her desire to appear "normal," continues to make homophobic jokes with her girlfriends, neck with her boyfriend, and play the innocent with her parents, even as she checks the mirror each night for the telltale signs of her "perversion."
In this profound, witty, poignant, and highly charged novel, Jane DeLynn proves herself a writer of the first rank.
Klappentext: "All Lynn's phobias, aversions, preferences, and hang-ups make her exaggerated but real and terrifically funny. The great triumph of this novel is that DeLynn has captured the way adolescents felt, talked, and behaved during the early 1960s."- San Francisco Chronicle
"A dazzling novel. . . . The most obvious comparison is Holden Caulfield and The Catcher in the Rye. It's got real wit to it and an audacious originality. The dialogue is superb and the pace perfect. . . . The single most wonderful quality of this novel is its absolute credibility. This book is going to have a long, long life."-Los Angeles Times Book Review
"One of the 100 best gay and lesbian novels of all time"-Publishing Triangle
