Hmm...

I think I read two Rainbow books, and some other of his books, God Box, and something else, all reviewed on this site, as well as interviewed Alex.

Hmm, I didn't read the other, but if I ever do, at least I know the ending is messed up, heh. Probably safe that I wouldn't read it, though. Even the stuff I review for Oasis is very male-slanted.

annie on my mind is my all time favorite lesbian book.

Edmund White

is probably the only gay writer that I've been able to get into. I recall reading "A Boy's own Story" when I was 15 and just totally understanding and relating to that.

In my most recent journal entry, "No Rewards Without Risks, Conclusion" I tried to describe a very real and significant event in my life while walking the narrow line between eroticism and pornography. I think Edmund White pulls that off (no pun intended!) with ease.

I can't say I've read any lesbian themed books, but then again I'm not a lesbian.

girls girls girls keeping you a secret is BY FAR the best lesbo book out there I HATED kissing kate and annie as much as i adore it and own it feels out dated

i loathed kissing kate.

i loathed kissing kate. mainly because it was EXACTLY what i was going through, minus the family settings/drunken party thing.
and i love annie, too. it is sort of outdated, but i love it just the same.
i have yet to read keeping you a secret.

& your signature is my favorite song in the world XD

I don't remember the ending

I don't remember the ending to kissing kate. but annie on my mind was the first lesbo book i read...sad too...but keeping you a secret is totally the best...truth dare or promise is pretty good too.

Yay, now they don't think you're queer, just a slut!
