Comments for Outside the Lavender Closet

Outside the Lavender ClosetOutside the Lavender Closet: 09/01/09

Outside of the Lavender Closet is a novel about a woman interviewing lesbians in and around Austin Texas to see if she could determine a common thread behind their stories.

Each chapter (or interview) is almost a short story but the stories are intertwined as Margaret Allen follows leads and brings her own interpretation of events into the interviews.

Among her interviews are lesbian twins raised by different parents and ending up completely different except for their homosexuality. Then there is a nun turned poet who lives in a dilapidated house and needs to control every situation.

Together the twins and the poet made the Outside the Lavender Closet read like a lesbian version of The Thirteenth Tale, a novel I was reading in conjunction with Martha A. Taylor's.

I found the book a fascinating and quick read. I plan to keep my review copy to reread.
