Transcript 16 OUT ON THE BAYOU DECEMBER 31, 1999 • HOUSTON VOICE Out In Print BOOK NEWS Top shelf reading from 1999 Three of our reviewers—J.S. Hall, Debbie Fraker and Colleen McMahon—pondered their 1999 reading lists for highlights of the year in print. THE BOOK OF LIES by Felice Picano, Alyson Publications. In the next decade, an up-and-coming queer studies scholar discovers both more and less than he bargained for when he learns of a previously unknown member of the gay male writing group, the Purple Circle. Picano shows his considerable range in excerpts from nine different fictitious authors in this sprawling tale, which is part literary mystery, part affectionate tribute to his fellow members of the Violet Quill. BRUISED FRUIT by Anna Livia, Firebrand Books. Possibly the funniest novel ever about childhood trauma, abusive relationships, and serial killers. The scene in which one character uses a Mickey Mouse mask to disguise herself while shopping in Good Vibrations is worth the price of admission alone. CINNAMON GARDENS by Shyam Selvadurai, Hyperion. A refreshing change of scenery from the present day gay ghetto that takes place in 1920s Sri Lanka. Its leisurely pace recalls a bygone era of writing, and as its characters evoke classic English literature, the novel contains pride, prejudice, and a passage to India as well. THE CRISIS OF DESIRE by Robin Hardy with David Groff, Houghton Mifflin. With a striking combination of eloquence and pulling no punches, Robin Hardy reaches from beyond the grave to remind us that AIDS is not over and explores the not-so-obvious ways in which the virus affects the daily interactions of gay men. Chilling and thought provoking. THE ELUSIVE EMBRACE: DESIRE AND THE RIDDLE OF IDENTITY by Daniel Mendelsohn, Knopf. Personal memoir mixed with gay cultural research and a touch of philosophical musing make this a very thought-provoking book on gay iden- Euro Pine Direct Importers of Fine Furniture 'Where The Trade Is Always Welcome" Phone: 713-266-4304 Fax: 713-781-8445 E-mail: hbw4gla@acninc.net visit us on the web: www.europinedirect.qpg.com 3029 Crossview, Houston, TX 77063 One Block East of Fondren and Westheimer WESTHEIMER ROAD CLARKCHEST N GO l CO o rr ° i AVENUE tity, how we define it and how that identity interacts with our various communities. FULL EXPOSURE by Susie Bright, Harper San Francisco. The queen of sex writing has done it again. She can always come up with new, original and exciting material, even when you think she's said everything she could possibly say about sex. THE GUMSHOE, THE WITCH AND THE VIRTUAL CORPSE by Keith Hartman, Meisha Merlin Publishing. One of the best books of the year, queer or otherwise. Keith Hartman combines a sus- penseful plot and on-target cultural commentary with a near-future Atlanta setting, lots of well-drawn characters, and oh yeah, it's laugh-out-loud funny. What more could you ask for? A sequel. TALES OF THE LAVENDAR MENACE: A MEMOIR OF LIBERATION by Karla Jay, Basic Books. A personal account of the gay and feminist movements of the late '60s and early 70s. The two movements have not always worked well together, causing difficulty and confusion for lesbian feminists like Jay. Though she has done a lot of work in aca- demia, this book is very readable and close to the heart. THAT'S MISTER FAGGOT TO YOU: FURTHER TRIALS OF MY QUEER LIFE by Michael Thomas Ford, Alyson Publications. Ford's follow-up to his hugely successful "Alec Baldwin Doesn't love Me" is darker, angrier and just as bitingly funny. Fabulously testy and trenchant, he simultaneously exposes our foibles for ridicule and embraces them The essay dealing with a disastrous first try at active anal sex will have readers rolling on the floor with laughter. TO BELIEVE IN WOMEN: WHAT LESBIANS HAVE DONE FOR AMERICA by Lillian Faderman, Houghton Mifflin. Though it is thick and densely academic, this is a very important account of lesbians in the early history of the women's movement. One hopes that it will inspire an equally brilliant historian to fill in the gaps of lesbians of color missing from these pages. WEDDING BELL BLUES by Julia Watts, Naiad Press. A zany marriage-of- convenience tale about a gay man and a lesbian in a sham marriage to protect her daughter from her dead lover's vengeful family. It's light entertainment with something serious to say about the tenuous state of child custody for queer non-biological parents. A WOMAN LIKE THAT edited by Joan Larkin, Bard Books. Who'd have thought that in 1999 an anthology of coming out stories could still be fresh and worthwhile? The writers filling this book are top-notch, from established lights of the community like Judy Grahn and Minne Bruce Pratt, to newer voices like Cecilia Tan, The stories range from funny to sexy to heartbreaking, just like real life.
