Publisher's Summary

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.

dark and seedy

Not really a story more of a diary of a central character and her different relationships. This is not the light reading. The writing is very observational and at times witty with a lot of emotive descriptions. But there is not real plot or story line. There seems to be an expectation that the writing and detail of gritty relationships and environment will carry the reader, as if this is 'novel' and shocking gritty life, emotive turmoil of the main character will keep your attention, but I only found it demoralizing but a bit a addictive, 'like endlessly playing with a sore hang nail' (that last phase is my example of the sort of descriptive through the novel). Okay, well - I found it too dark, gritty. Gritty is the wrong word, but any other might cause my review to get bounded (again). I don't recommend this. Audible bounced my last review when I tried to put in a few conversational words to advise readers of what is covered, which gives an indication of its content.
