Shockproof Sydney Skate by Marijane Meaker( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sydney Skate considers himself shockproof. For as long as he can remember, he’s known that his fashionable Manhattan mother is secretly a lesbian, although he’s never let on that he knows. He spends his summer days caring for snakes at the local pet shop before leaving for college at Cornell, shrugging off his father’s demands that he skip college and join the exciting world of swimming pool sales for suburbanites. Far from throwing himself into work, Sydney can’t seem to keep his thoughts from wandering to women. He has memorized the sex scenes of every book he’s ever read in order to better seduce the opposite gender. When he’s called to help remove a snake from a bathtub that belongs to the gorgeous and sophisticated Alison Gray, everything changes. But nothing could prepare him for his glamorous mother sweeping the girl of his dreams off her feet

Patricia Highsmith, author of classics such as The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Price of Salt, was a lesbian who defied categorization during the postwar period. Her dynamic, often difficult life coupled with her sinister crime stories and upbeat lesbian pulp fiction challenged popular stereotypes about homosexuality as well as women writers. To aspiring young novelist Marijane Meaker, however, Highsmith was more than a role model.
