Staff Pick

The second half of Rent Girl captures so well what San Francisco was like pre-dot-com and in the beginning stages of the dot-com revolution. This San Francisco got wiped out in the tsunami of tech cash that washed the alternative culture across the bay and up to Portland, Oregon. Michelle Tea's blunt style is great.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Publishers Weekly called Michelle Tea "a modern-day Beat, a kind of pop ambassador to the world of the tattooed, pierced, politicized and sex-radical queer-grrls of San Francisco. [She] dramatizes the hopes and hurts, apathies and ambitions of young lesbians looking for love in the Mission District." Rent Girl continues Tea's graphic and uncompromising autobiographical bender, telling the story of her years as a prostitute, with provocative and richly illustrated work by Laurenn McCubbin.

Synopsis:

A graphic and uncompromising autobiographical bender, the story of Tea's years as a prostitute, with provocative illustrations by Laurenn McCubbin.

Leslie Joseph, August 15, 2006 (view all comments by Leslie Joseph)
A must for Michelle Tea fans. Tea takes her irresistably gritty storytelling ability one step further by teaming up with illustrator Lauren McCubbin to create a powerful, entertaining, and enjoyably off-color graphic novel.
