Throw It to the River
Throw It to the River by Nice Rodriguez
A hilarious and erotic collection of short stories, expanding the definition of 'butch' while poking sly fun at Canada, the lesbian movement, and butch-femme roles. Nice Rodriguez' storytelling is politically sharp; her heroes are fabulous - full of longing, romance, beauty, and courage. Rodriguez is a writer who commits an oral tradition to paper, who testifies to a Philippines racked by US colonialism and Marcos' greed, who is honest and clear. She is a writer who loves and translates that love to this wonderful book.
