Although, everyone told me that when it finally happened, it would be stickier and involve cab fare.
Still…I don’t feel inclined to complain.
The online magazine Autostraddle has just released its list of the “100 Best Lesbian Fiction & Memoir Books of All Time”—and Jericho made the cut, clocking in at the coveted number 69 spot.
And I didn’t even have to make it breakfast….
But seeing my name on ANY list that includes the likes of Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Allison, Gertrude Stein, Jeanette Winterson, Sarah Waters, Rita Mae Brown, Radclyffe Hall, Emma Donoghue, Allison Bechdel, Fannie Flagg, Ellen DeGeneres, Nicola Griffith, Jewelle Gomez, Katherine Forrest, Joyce Carol Oates, Carson McCullers, Sylvia Brownrigg, Ann Bannon, Audra Lorde, Patricia Highsmith, Malinda Lo, Michael Cunningham, and Alice Walker—not to mention my friends and colleagues Susan X. Meagher, Sarah Diemer, K.E. Lane, and Catherine Wilson—simply makes my head spin. In all honesty, it seems like I folded space and woke up in some alternate universe.
If so, I hope my Paw Points still work when I need more cat litter….
Thanks to everyone at Autostraddle—and the voters at goodreads, who made this all happen.
