    One thought on “Riverfinger Women”

    1. This was a fantastic book. The style was occasionally immature but gave the reader a good point from which to watch the narrator growing up. The story was fresh and had a very authentic "feel." I liked the main character and, considering that I live in a rural place with a very smalll LGBT culture, it was exactly what I needed. I'll probably read it again and again.

    2. Original Blog Post: headouttheoven/20There is one thing I liked about this book. Yes, it was written in 1974 but it has a contemporary feel to it. This may sound cliche but it is true all the same.In the present categorization of things, this would be considered a YA book by many. Written by a young Elana Dykewomon, Riverfinger Women does give the reader the 'youngish' feel to the writing style, to quote someone else who read this.

    3. A story about a young woman coming to terms with homosexuality in the 60's and 70's. This book was written in 1974, when it was even harder for homosexuals. I enjoyed this book and the main character.

    4. a lot of reviewers have said that this is dykewomon at her most amateur, and i agree; she plays fast and loose with the concept of a distinct plot, and the narration is winding and a little difficult to follow. her later works are much more clear and follow a more distinct narrative. but lord do i love those explicit depictions of lesbians and lesbian culture! lord does she ever get those dyke feelings right on the nose!
