Rita Will: Memoir of a Literary Rabble-Rouser by Rita Mae Brown

Book Description

Rita Mae Brown never had to come out of the closet because she was never in it. Within her garrulous, wisecracking family, she was always an outsider--called "Il" by her mother because she was the illegitimate child of a relative, adopted as an infant by the Browns. Loved but isolated, she was a child more at ease with animals than with people and a frequent pawn in the outrageous battles between her mother and her aunt, the mythic Juts and Wheezie of the novels "Six of One" and "Bingo." What was never an issue, though, was her sexuality. Julia Brown accepted that her daughter was gay. At college it was different: Rita Mae's lesbianism and support of civil rights jeopardized the education she craved. Transferring to New York University, she got involved in the fledgling women's movement, where her outspokenness got her thrown out of NOW. An experiment in communal living was an inevitable bust. Then came "Rubyfruit Jungle, " the scandalous classic that made Rita Mae Brown the most famous openly gay person in America.A writing career in Hollywood followed, plus a love affair that was the most memorable of her life--all this before her relationship with tennis champion Martina Navratilova brought her transatlantic notoriety as the woman who might singlehandedly destroy women's tennis.Through it all Rita Mae Brown has stayed grounded--by a fierce work drive, a connection to her Southern heritage, and an irreverent sense of humor that flavors every page of this irresistibly readable memoir. In a me-too world, she has remained a true original.
