SKYLIT: Camille Roy, ”HONEY MINE” w/ Michelle Tea

Posted in literature, skylight books, los angeles, book stores, books, fiction, LGBTQ, skylit by skylightbooks on September 8th, 2021
A content warning for this episode: discussions of sexual assault and incest.
 
Honey Mine unfolds as both excavation and romp, an adventure story that ushers readers into a lesbian writer's coming of age through disorienting, unsparing, and exhilarating encounters with sex, gender, and distinctly American realities of race and class. From childhood in Chicago's South Side to youth in the lesbian underground, Roy's politics find joyful and transgressive expression in the liberatory potential of subculture. Find here, in these new, uncollected and out-of-print fictions by a master of New Narrative, a record of survival and thriving under conditions of danger.
