I’ve read several of the books on this list. What about y’all?
So, I recently did a bit of googling (asking Lord Google, as my friend would say) to find out what is usually included on lists of must-read “lesbian” books, or lists of “lesbian” classics. I’m putting lesbian in scare quotes there because I’m pretty resentful about having to use just this search term, when what I really mean is bi/queer/lesbian/otherwise non-hetero women identified authors, characters, and books. But such is the status of googling today.
I’m all for book lists and I love to debate about what is a must-read and what isn’t in the realm of queer lady writing. But (wo)man, some of these lists suck. Part of this is the same problem I had with search terms: lists claim to tell you all the books “gay ladies” should all read, or the “lesbian” classics you can’t miss…
