    It s probably wrong to review a book after only 50 or so pages But god, this book is annoying as hell as a queer urban girl from san francisco, Michelle embarasses me, as she rambles long run on sentence paragraphs about her tragically hip dyke radical friends who are so bad, so sad, they cut themselves and fuck on the dance floor and have stupid names like Tricky and Spacegirl Her world consists of Punks , as defined by their clothes, hair and tattoos, who move here and treat the city li It s probably wrong to review a book after only 50 or so pages But god, this book is annoying as hell as a queer urban girl from san franc...

    For a San Francisco reader in the late 2010 s it s impossible not to read Valencia through a prism of nostalgia The subcultures and spaces Tea captures so vividly have now all but disappeared, so many of the coffee shops and dive bars and affordable apartments that provide the staging for Tea s autobiographical experiences now transformed into trendy bistros, expensive boutiques, and upscale bars with mixologists that take ten minutes to make your cocktail because it requires a dozen differen For a San Francisco reader in the late 2010 s it s impossible not to read Valencia through a prism of nostalgia The subcultures and spaces Tea captures so vividly have now all but disappeared, so many of the coffee shops and dive bars and affordable apartments that provide the staging for Tea s autobiographical experiences now transformed into trendy bistros, expensive boutiques, and upscale bars with mixologists that take ten minutes to make your cocktail because it requires a dozen different ingredients Perhaps evenimportantly, the queer particularly the lesbian and kink communities have been long driven away by impossible rent and lack of welcoming places Where Tea s Valencia Street is a expanse of possibility both physical and mental, Valencia Street in 2018 is ground zero for the tensions of hyper gentrification So it was within this context...

    This is a memoir of a 25 year old lesbian in 90s San Francisco documenting her times drinking, not working, and having a lot of latex gloved sex with various girls It s plotlessness really worked for me, and I figured out it was because Tea is completely honest as an autobiographer This became apparent when I was planning on thinking she was pretentious, and that never coming to be I assumed she was going to try and make herself sound really hip, being a counterculture woman swinging in one This is a memoir of a 25 year old lesbian in 90s San Francisco documenting her times drinking, not working, and having a lot of latex gloved sex with various girls It s plotlessness reall...

    I loved this book Sure, I m biased because I m from SF and worked alongside Ms Tea at Books, Inc where she hosted crazy book readings with hard liquor Sure, I m biased because I was never part of that scene, but secretly envied it Reading the book, however, I didn t feel a bit of envy I just enjoyed the scenes from afar Sure it s...

    san francisco s michelle tea is the most vital writer of her generation, one of the few people from our era they ll still be studying 100 years from now, and in valencia she is at the absolute top of her game dirty, shocking, subversive, with an embracing of a complex sexuality and lifestyle that needs no apologies, tea s work has a good chance of permanently changing your life after being exposed to it or at least getting you looking at the war of the sexes in an entirely new way highly rec san francisco s michelle tea is the most vital writer of her generation, one of the few people from our era they ll still be studying 100 years from now, and in valencia she is at the absolute top of her game dirty, shocking, subversive...

    I keep trying to read Michelle Tea s books because she is our local lesbian celebrity, but I find her books a little heavy and over the top But I m weirdly fascinated with reading them, too Kind of like driving by a train wreck and not being able to avert your eyes I feel the same way about some Joyce Carol Oats books Someone described JCO s writing as grotesque once, and that s a good word to describe Valencia, too I mean, how many freaky, unstable 20 something lesbians are there, having s I keep trying to read Michelle Tea s books because she is our local lesbian celebrity, but I find her books a little heavy and over the top But I m weirdly fascinated with reading them, too Kind of like driving by a train wreck and not being able to avert your eyes I feel the same way about some Joyce Carol Oats books Someone described JCO s writing as grotesque once, and that s a good word to describe Valencia, too I mean, how many freaky, unstable 20 something lesbians are there, having sex in nasty bar bathrooms, trying all kinds of drugs, and living in dumpy apartments I guess what I don t like about it is that these girl s lives are considered so glam...

    This book does a great job of articulating everything I hate about belonging to such a specific subculture The first half of the book was slow for me, and I have a knee jerk disapproval of people who claim a working class background but are as irresponsible and treat work with the abandon that Tea does And while this book isn t all about drugs and alcohol, it is enough about drugs and alcohol to bore the hell out of me Halfway into the book, though, it does have a shining clump of chapters, b This book does a great job of articulating everything I hate about belonging to such a specific subculture The first half of t...
