Your Guide to Getting Out AliveBook - 2005
Clearly, if Showtime can create an entire series dedicated to dyke drama (The L Word), it’s way past time for it to receive the respect it deserves—and has been demanding for years. Dyke drama scholars Terri Fabris and Angela Brown have created a complete guide to this cultural institution, passed down nobly from Sappho to Gertrude Stein to Melissa Etheridge to Amélie Mauresmo. Fabris and Brown chart the evolution of dyke drama as it passes from dating right on down through breakups and into lesbian incest (dating your ex’s ex’s ex). Also included: Dating Drama, Drunk Drama, Workplace Drama, Academia Drama, Lesbian Illness Drama and Therapy Drama.
Terri Fabris is an Alyson editor.
Angela Brown is Alyson’s editor in chief. She’s Terri’s boss. Drama.
