Rhiannon Cates, January 2, 2012 (view all comments by Rhiannon Cates)
The most fantastic book I read in 2011! In an interview I read with the author, young San Franciscan Rhiannon Argo, she explains that "I write about queer kids, use queer specific slang, and have genderqueer and trans characters. My writing also blurs genres sometimes and experiments with form, which is something I also see as queer." This perfectly fits The Creamsickle. Exploring themes of machismo and sexism within the queer community itself is a critical conversation that Argo has through the colorful characters of this great story of queer family and the subcultures within a subculture. Assimilation is another major discussion that The Creamsickle sparked for me, especially in terms of rearranging lesbianism and lesbian literature within a larger framework of ever-evolving queer and genderqueer culture. The fluidity of the characters and times, (this novel is set in 2009, when it was published), make this a casual yet intimate read in its journalistic and almost contemporary pulp fiction type style. For me, the best part of this novel was how I found myself reflected and contrasted within the snapshot of a queer family and community that Argo is so successfully able to create. For fans of Michelle Tea and of great, relevant stories. I will always recommend it.
