After Delores by Sarah Schulman

2013, paperback

"Hilarious, hard-core . . . makes Bright Lights, Big City and Less Than Zero seem thin and dated."—Publishers Weekly

A new edition of Sarah Schulman's acclaimed 1988 novel, a noirish tale about a no-nonsense coffee-shop waitress in New York who is nursing a broken heart after her girlfriend Dolores leaves her; her attempts to find love again are funny, sexy, and ultimately even violent. After Delores is a fast-paced, electrifying chronicle of the Lower East Side's lesbian subculture in the 1980s.

Sarah Schulman's previous books include EmpathyRat BohemiaThe Child, and The Gentrification of the Mind.
