Rita Mae Brown


Thursday, March 20, 2008
 
Here's an interesting article on Rita Mae Brown from Time. While her fiction is not considered cutting edge - cat mysteries get a lot of grief in some quarters - she's apparently fearless in real life. She's never felt a need to hide her homosexuality, and in fact her first book, Ruby Fruit Jungle, was a comic coming-of-age story about a young lesbian. It sold a million copies.

She was also kicked out of NOW by Betty Freidan personally, and later has a high-profile relationship with Martina Navratilova. Now she's Master of the Hounds for a foxhunting club in Virginia. No word on what Sneaky Pie thinks of that.
