By one of this country's most distinctive writers Rita Mae Brown's milestone first novel is the story of an unusually strong and colorful woman's irrepressible march through prejudices of class, sex, and race while retaining a positive self-image. Bawdy and moving, Rubyfruit Jungle is about growing up a lesbian in America--and living happily ever after. Born a bastard, Molly Bolt is adopted by a dirt-poor southern couple who want something better for their daughter. Molly plays doctor with the boys, beats up Leroy the tub and loses her virginity to her girlfriend in Molly decides not to apologize for that. In no time she mesmerizes the head cheerleader of Ft. Lauderdale heiress. But the world is not tolerant.
