Rebecca Brown (The Gifts of the Body, The Terrible Girls) has long been considered one of our most inventive and edgy lesbian fiction writers. In this most recent collection of writing, she is at the height of her creative and intuitive powers. In a gonzo mix of pop culture, autobiography, fiction, and literary history, Brown presents Gertrude Stein as presiding over a same-sex religious movement, intersects the lives of the Beach Boyâ€™s Brian Wilson and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and reveals the sex life of H.G. Wellsâ€™s invisible man. Despite a mostly playful tone, Brown underscores humor with a serious examination of the ways America has tried and failed to craft and tell its own story. Brown will be joined by Chicago essayist Christine Simokaitis. (booksense)
