Rubyfruit Jungle

Most readers know Rita Mae Brown as the writer of the Sneaky Pie Brown mysteries. So I forgive the selector who assigned the paperback reissue of her 1973 saphic bildungsroman The Rubyfruit Jungle to our Mysteries section, next to Puss'n Cahoots and The Purrfect Murder. I considered leaving it there so granny could broaden her horizons some day. Or maybe get her trifocals melted. But I moved it regular fiction instead.

Saphic! Oh, you literate boy, you.

Not that literate, I guess. I should have spelled the word "Sapphic." I misppelled it.
