The story of a failed lesbian relationship modeled on Marcel Proust's Swann in Love. Sorel was a fixture of the Greenwich Village scene since the mid-1970s, raised by communist Jewish parents in Carle Place, Long Island. She majored in philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Madison before moving to New York City where she held her only job at art book publisher, Abaris. She supported herself by selling drugs, picking up a cocaine addiction in the process, and contributing to Screw magazine as well as a regular column in a gay Village newspaper. Despite many reports of her difficult personality and passive-aggressive nature, she hosted a public access talk show called The Lesbian Family Hour. During the 1990s she became solely focused on her writing, rarely leaving her dingy apartment and writing long into the night with loud music that disturbed her fellow neighbors. Sadly, she was found brutally murdered in her apartment at age 54, the victim of a drug deal gone bad. Her killers were eventually captured because of her own meticulous note taking concerning each drug transaction. Bookseller Inventory # 374863
