9780934678599: Lady God

After a childhood spent in poverty and isolation, Landy flees her family, her rural mountain home and the ghost of her disturbed mother. Moving to a college town she tentatively begins to meet new people, including Claire, her out lesbian neighbor, who slowly helps her untangle her recurring nightmares and confusion about her emerging sexuality.

About the Author:

Lesa Luders received an MFA degree from Eastern Washington University. She teaches writing at the University of Idaho, and lives with her partner in Moscow, Idaho.

From Booklist:

Landy is a young woman running from memories of deeply disturbed parents--her mother committed suicide, and her father has been drunk ever since. Haunted by images of early childhood incest at the hands of the sexually abusive, deranged mother, Landy becomes one of two roomers in the ironically named Mansion in a college town just two hours from the scenes of her childhood. There, she takes the first, tentative steps toward defining herself by means of employment, friendship, and her sexuality as she is increasingly drawn to Claire, a lesbian neighbor whose steady caring helps Landy form the bedrock for positive new growth. Luders uses pared-down, minimalist prose to tell this deeply disturbing tale of graphically depicted, ritualistic sexual abuse and alcoholism that is not for the faint of heart. Whitney Scott
