Shockproof Sydney Skate by Marijane Meaker( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A uniquely witty novel exploring sex, freedom, and the process of growing up 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. This hypnotizing coming-of-age story captures the timeless ecstasies and struggles of adolescence, and has been a classic of lesbian literature since it was first published in 1973. Hailed as the Catcher in the Rye of the seventies, Shockproof Sydney Skate exposes the confusion of its time and remains keenly relevant to the sexual absurdities of today. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Marijane Meaker including rare images from the author’s collection

Highsmith : a romance of the 1950's : a memoir by Marijane Meaker( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patricia Highsmith, author of classics such as The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train, was a writer who defied simple categorization. Gore Vidal called her: "One of our greatest modernist writers." The Cleveland Plain Dealer rightly commented: "Patricia Highsmith is often called a mystery or crime writer, which is a bit like calling Picasso a draftsman."" "To young novelist Marijane Meaker, however, Highsmith was more than a role model. Shortly after the two met in a New York lesbian bar, they became lovers and embarked on a two year romance amidst the bohemian set of Greenwich Village and the literary crowd of Fire Island. There, the pair navigated the underground lesbian scene, lunched with literary stars like Janet Flanner, shared intimacies, and gossiped with abandon. Written with wit and brassy candor, Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950's is a revealing look at a controversial icon of popular American fiction."--Back cover
