Stir-Fry: A Novel
Exhilerating...irreverent, and extremely funny,"- "Ms,"
Seventeen and sure of nothing, Maria has left her parents' small-town grocery for university life in Dublin. An ad in the Student Union-"2 "[FEMALE SYMBOL]" seek flatmate. No bigots."-leads Maria to a home with warm Ruth and wickedly funny Jael, students who are older and more fascinating than she'd expected. A poignant, funny, and sharply insightful coming-of-age story, Stir-fry is a lesbian novel that explores the conundrum of desire arising in the midst of friendship and probes feminist ideas of sisterhood and nonpossessiveness.
Emma Donoghue is the author of the forthcoming "Slammerkin, Hood" "and Kissing the Witch" . Born in Dublin, she now lives in Ontario, Canada. "Stir-fry" was her first novel.
