"This utterly unexpected book dives straight into the chaos of an American adolescence, echoing the infernal laughter of William S. Burroughs as it probes the messier forms of sexual awakenings."-"Details" ""House Rules" . . . ventures off the map into an uncharted, quite terrifying strip of psychological badlands."-"The Village Voice" The narrator of Lewis' amazing first novel is 15-year-old Lee, whose story is both a fascinating and disturbing look at the dark side of show horse riding. With extraordinary insight, Heather Lewis describes a world she knew from the inside. Since its first publication 10 years ago, "House Rules" has established itself as a classic of lesbian literature. Heather Lewis is the author of two other novels, "Notice" and "The Second Suspect," In 2002, she took her own life at the age of 40.
