Yak, who messengers in NYC.
Alleycats and track bikes, from San Diego and Seattle, to the BIg Apple, Kidder's book is accessible and fascinating, sure to elicit admiration and, yup, a sense of awe for these wild and crazy men and women who fly through traffic at breakneck speed and move seamlessly through the urban jungle.
Then at 5:00 p.m. I welcome Bett Norris, in another of my series of lesbian novelists.
Set in a small rural Alabama town, the story revolves around the turbulence and upheavals of postwar America. Filtered through the lens of a closeted lesbian relationship, the lives of Mary McGhee and Lila Dubose intersect with Southern-style racism, the horrors and triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement.
Born and raised in Alabama, Norris grew up about forty miles from Haper Lee's home town. She is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a BA in history.
