    From one sapphic sexual encounter to another the unnamed narrator of this sizzling novel is a wonderful waspish companion in a thoughtful and hilarious examination of the ties and lies that bind and unbind

    I read Leash a while ago and it fucked with my mind in many ways Don Juan was if you can apply these terms to a book like this a kind of gentler version of the same basic idea The narrator details her sexual and some partially nonsexual exploits in locals ranging from NYC to Morocco chronicling her reactions and reasonings with a lack of passion that makes her very explicit encounters with a variety of women not anywhere near as sexy as one would suppose Leash was fascinating in its plot in a way that this couldn't really compare to but both offered shocking looks into the minds of their narrators This narrator comes of mostly as a bit crazy thinking of herself as the most fabulous person in the world; most of her encounters fail in part because she believes the women she's sleeping with are not worthy of her notice This isn't so interesting but every once in a while she breaks out with a statement that makes you empathize strongly with her which is uncomfortable to say the least By the end it seems almost like she's just a lot truthful about what we all secretly think anyway

  3. Jane Holloway Jane Holloway says:

    I agree with another reviewer who said that Don Juan is a version of Leash in the sense that it examines a lot of the same themes Don Juan has a contained scope though Leash is an explosion of these themes into the realm of satire sci fi Don Juan was perfect for completely different reasons Also the narration was funnier to me this time around Leash was a bit drab and desperate still hilarious but Don Juan was easier on the eyes Read Iowa read Key West this is classical beauty shrouded in a hint of tacky self loathing self aggrandizement

    The novel is witty written in a Picaresue form each having its own psychologically poignant existential moment It is not afraid to go there beyond the expectation of gender role even within the LGBT community It gives an subjective even consciously egotistical view of human sexuality which involves self disgust self love emotional orand physical pain and addiction Delyn's narrator takes me through the journey of these emotions and teach me about acceptance of these social conditions that impact our interactions with ourselves and other human beings I love it

    There is something so weird about the voice in this book it's kind of like 90s lesbian fiction voice reminding me of other stuff I've read but I can't put my finger on it exactly Eileen Myles? Not Michelle Tea exactly arrogantAnyway also the conceit of an entirely unlikeable narrator having lots of bad sex and weird encounters seems pretty 90s like the shock value would have worked better then The cover uote is from Brett Easton Ellis for g dsakesThere are funny and good stories here But there's so much gross fatphobia and just meanness in this I guess it's good for holding a mirror up to the yuck bits inside us but mostly it's just yuck

    The first book that I read about lesbianism and it's good Although most things are vague the stories realistically portrayed the lifestyle of a homosexual woman in search for love acceptance compassion friendship It demonstrates a woman's whether straight or not struggle to find her place in the society I wish I'd find a copy of this because I only borrowed that from a friend

    I got all into Jane De Lynn Not as ambitious as her novel Real Estate this book is a bunch of gem like stories united by the theme of women drinking travel alienation and sex Crisp and a little cold with a frisson of cruelty
