Carl and Ep detoured to take us kids to Richmond and there we saw a stuffed seal that had come down to swim around Richmond in the 1800s. There was a stuffed Indian too, but he made me sick. There was a stuffed Indian too, but he made me sick ed, and I liked the Civil War uniforms best. The Confederate ones were the prettiest because they had gold braid all down on the cuffs of the sleeves. Leroy confessed if he didn’t become a famous actor, he’d become a soldier so he could wear gold braid on his sleeves.

I first heard of this book & author from one of my all-time fave movies, " Educating Rita". It was written in the early 70's and for those times would not be in a high school library, nowadays probably considered quite tame, even the norm. Molly is an illegitimate child raised by her vindictive aunt Carrie & kind uncle Carl. It chronicles her from 7 y.o. Until early adulthood when she
Lands in New York City. Molly is s lesbian as is real-life author, Rita Mae Brown. Molly is a force to reckoned with she has all the odds stacked against her & every reason to fail, but through her fierce determination & hard times she always seems to survive & beat the odds . She speaks her mind, even to the point of getting a beating for it. She isn't a pleaser and lives life on her own terms. It was so good I literally finished half the book the first day. Definitely a piece of history & in some courses, required reading. Do yourself a favor & buy this gem & be ready to be sweetly surprised. Very progressive for it's time, too!

I liked this book and its flinty protagonist, Molly. She's sassy, independent, and she doesn't take any crap from anybody. Her adventures in Florida and the Big Apple are picaresque and well-drawn---and man, does this gal know how to wreak revenge. Her pranks and antics had me rolling in the aisles. So I admire her brio, her bravura, and dare I say it---her balls. What I dislike: she's just too conceited. Her head is so big that she couldn't fit through a doorway and her mouth so outsized she could eat a banana sideways. After awhile, I tired of hearing about her academic and athletic prowess, her dark beauty, and her sculpted, muscular body. Also, it's more interesting when a character has some kind of personal arc. I know this is a memoir, but Molly starts out rock hard and stays that way: never is she troubled in the least by doubt or uncertainty. Victims are boring, but so are the overconfident and cocksure. In addition, Brown's writing is not that strong. The tenses waver and the grammar is sketchy. Still, I recommend this coming of age memoir, because Brown is a entertaining and wicked wit.

As a straight male reader, I found this to be a fascinating coming of age novel and a glimpse of what it was like growing up as a lesbian a generation or so ago. More than that, though, it's a very compelling story about a person who insists on being herself in spite of the pressure put on her by just about everyone she encounters. If there were more people with such a strong sense of individuality in this world, we'd probably have a much easier time accepting one another for who we are--we'd have no choice.

I understand that the book is important for having addressed lesbianism and feminism at a time when those subjects were not much discussed. In that sense, it's a groundbreaking book, and I respect that, On the other hand, I simply did not like the protagonist, Molly. She is extremely scornful of those who do not share her own views about what is and is not a worthwhile life, and she can be truly cruel at times. She's is simply not someone I would want to spend time with.

CONVERSE
Definitely radical when it was first published. The book was recommended, and it was kind of what I expected. It took real bravery to write this type of book, and Molly is an incredible character. She is a little adult, completely herself, absolutely fearless, and I think it's amazing. She does the impossible because of her indomitable spirit. Her father, Carl, truly loves her, and encourages her, despite her mother's fear and ignorance. Molly will not be defeated, regardless of being challenged at a nativity play, or confronted by a principal, or the dean of women. She soars - breezing through high school, thriving in college despite her lackadaisical roommate, forcing her way through New York. I like the end. It's not her mother, Carrie's revelation, so much as Molly's recognition of what Carrie went through that is most poignant, and despite all that toughness and meanness, Carrie loves Molly. I like this book, and though Molly is admirable, I didn't always like her. Still, it was a pleasure to read.

Read this when it was first published and adored it. At the time I was asked how I could like a lesbian book and was asked if I was secretly gay. REALLY. I don't know what made me think of it again but as a 65y/o I believe I got ever more from it this time. I loved molly then and now. I wished then and I was more like her and now happy that I have more of molly in me. Still not gay but still a lover of fabulous women. Fiction or non fiction. Thank you Rita Mae for Molly and Dolly. Can't wait to start six of one, bingo and loose lips.
