All The Pretty People: Tales of Carob, Shame, and Barbie Envy

All The Pretty People: Tales of Carob, Shame, and Barbie Envy

by Ariel Gore

This new book by Ariel Gore brings out all of the dirt on 1970s suburban hippies. Through an authentic voice, funny stories alternate between warming and saddening your soul. It's a queer love story. But it's also got no shortage of shame, violence, and Barbie envy. It's about the pretty people she used to know in California—the people she wanted to be but never quite felt she was. "How was I to know that all the pretty people got their answers from TV?"
