Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Valencia is the fast-paced account of one girl's search for love and high times in the drama-filled dyke world of San Francisco's Mission District. Michelle Tea records a year lived in a world of girls: there's knife-wielding Marta, who introduces Michelle to a new world of radical sex; Willa, Michelle's tormented poet-girlfriend; Iris, the beautiful boy-dyke who ran away from the South in a dust cloud of drama; and Iris's ex, Magdalena Squalor, to whom Michelle turns when Iris breaks her heart.

Synopsis:

The fast-paced account of one girl's search for love and high times in the drama-filled dyke world of San Francisco's Mission District, "Valencia" conveys a blend of youthful urgency and apocalyptic apathy.

Leslie Joseph, January 24, 2011 (view all comments by Leslie Joseph)
No matter how much time goes by, Valencia's story stays fresh. Michelle Tea depicts her life in 1990's San Francisco throught a lens of excitement, grittiness, and that nothing-to-lose joie de vivre. The characters ring true, and the events strike a chord with anyone who's ever lived on the egde, even a little bit. Read Valencia!

Valencia is a fast paced book that takes you straight into the stream of consciousness of the main character as she explores a lesbian underworld of SF that many of us won't experience, but chocked full of thoughts, feelings and emotions that most young women can relate to.
