9780299190040: Don Juan in the Village: A Novel

From the lesbian bars of New York City to the back streets of Fez, from the S&M scene in Los Angeles to the calm ocean depths off a Caribbean island, the heroine of Don Juan in the Village is ever on the prowl. In search of the longed-for, idealized lover, she finds instead a series of wrenching, sometimes hilarious encounters with an array of women, among them a movie star, a moroccan prostitute, and a high school dropout who works as a grocery store clerk. Hip, sardonic, yet painfully self-conscious and often deluded, she is convinced that no matter where she goes or whom she is with, she is doomed to perpetual solitude and estrangement.

From the Back Cover:
"The thing about sex-as this novel demonstrates in relentless (and riveting) detail-is that it's hardly ever just about sex. DeLynn has created a tough yet vulnerable antihero."-Village Voice

"If Woody Allen were a lesbian, he might have written something like Jane DeLynn's Don Juan in the Village."-The Observer (London)

"A fascinating, funny, and intense world tour of lesbian lust. . . . Bold, brash, frank, risqué, engaging, and at times borderline brilliant."-Lambda Book Report

Her work has appeared in Paris Review, Mademoiselle, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, New York Times, New York Observer, and Tikkun, and she lived in Saudi Arabia as a correspondent for Mirabella and Rolling Stone during the Gulf War.
