Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 1983
Rubyfruit Jungle is the first milestone novel in the extraordinary career of one of this country's most distinctive writers. Bawdy and moving, the ultimate word-of-mouth bestseller, Rubyfruit Jungle is about growing up a lesbian in America – and living happily ever after.

Born a bastard, Molly Bolt is adopted by a dirt-poor Southern couple who want something better for their daughter. Molly plays doctor with the boys, beats up Leroy the tub and loses her virginity to her girlfriend in sixth grade.

As she grows to realize she's different, Molly decides not to apologize for that. In no time she mesmerizes the head cheerleader of Ft. Lauderdale High and captivates a gorgeous bourbon-guzzling heiress.

But the world is not tolerant. Booted out of college for moral turpitude, an unrepentant, penniless Molly takes New York by storm, sending not a few female hearts aflutter with her startling beauty, crackling wit and fierce determination to become the greatest filmmaker that ever lived.

Critically acclaimed when first published, Rubyfruit Jungle has only grown in reputation as it has reached new generations of readers who respond to its feisty and inspiring heroine.

Pressestimmen

"I found myself laughing hysterically, then sobbing uncontrollably just moments later. A powerful story ... A truly incredible book."
-- The Boston Globe

"
Molly Bolt is a genuine descendant -- genuine female descendant -- of Huckleberry Finn. And Rita Mae Brown is, like Mark Twain, a serious writer who gets her messages across through laughter."
-- Donna E. Shalala, former Secretary of Health and Human Services

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simple words for simple wording 29. Mai 2000
Von Nona
Format:Taschenbuch
I have been reading all of the customer reviews, and it seems that they have been missing the whole point of this book. By no means is this a "lesbian" book, or a book that completely focuses on dealing with "coming out". Nor should this book be read exclusively by lesbians. It's a book that simply follows a unique, strong young woman from when she was a kid to when she grows up into her 20's. Futhermore, the simple style is the essence of the book; more complicated wording would not embody the character of Molly nearly as well. The point is that Molly, who is sassy and a shamelessly cut-and-dry lesbian, does not think that things should be overanalyzed and obsessed over. She sees everything as obvious and blatant. Hence the simple language. It is an unapologetic, extremely funny book, and it is hard to put it down. It pulls you in from the beginning and continues to stay exciting throughout this girl's tumultuous life. In some ways she grows, but in others she never does compromise her gutsy, fiery self. I loved it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved this book!! Funny, human, moving, personal 16. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
While on the phone with a friend I heard her mom in the background laughing out loud. Nobody else was in the room, she was just reading Rubyfruit Jungle. I had to read it and have been in search for a book as funny, streightforward and moving ever since. For me, the moral of this story was embrace what is unique and quirky about yourself. Live life to it's fullest, and laugh while your at it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolut lesenswert 14. November 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Kaum ein Buch hat mich von Anfang an so in seinen Bann gezogen, Rita Mae Brown versteht es die Leserinnen mitzunehmen in die Vergangenheit, in die Gedanken, in die Verwirrungen des Lebens von Molly. Ich habe herzlich gelacht und gleichzeitig ist das Lachen oft im Hals stecken geblieben. Brillant erzählt, direkt, mitreißend, rührend, oft ziemlich herb aber sehr willkommen. Man will nicht mehr aufhören zu lesen. Ich habe es sehr bedauert, als das Buch dann doch zu Ende war und habe es mir gleich in der deutschen Ausgabe auch noch gekauft. Die stark autobiographischen Anteile des Rubyfruit jungle werden nochmal deutlich in der Autobiographie "Rita Will".

5.0 von 5 Sternen one of the most beautifully written books I've seen 1. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I must say, I was turned off by this book... it looked trashy from the synopsis on the back cover, and when a person was quoted saying molly was like huck finn, that was it for me, cause I hated huck finn... so I bought it a couple months later, and I can sincerely say it's one of the best books I've ever read... molly's thought processes are so brutally honest, almost like Holden in Catcher in the Rye. She's witty and quick, making me burst out laughing at moments, and then making my stomach turn as I watched what she went through. truely a wonderful book, for any human out there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a must read for all women coming out! 6. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a MUST READ for all women coming out as lesbians, young or old. Rita Mae Brown's other books are not as enlightening or entertaining to me, but Rubyfruit was a gift from my first girlfriend and i've passed it around to other friends coming out who really needed to read it. It's helped a ton of us become more comfortable with who we are and connect us to a greater history.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 'Lesbian fiction' or just good fiction about a lesbian? 14. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I am struck by how many of the reviewers felt they had to categorize this book as 'lesbian fiction.' OK, it is written by a lesbian and its central character is a lesbian and most of the book deals with issues related to sexual orientation. But all books have to be about something, and whether one is a lesbian or not, this book deals with the same human issues that confront everyone in growing up and makeing a place in the world. The very things that some of the reveiwers criticise - the humor and lightness of touch on some serious issues - is exactly what makes this book accessable to the reading public at large and really saves it from being simply 'lesbian fiction'. It is a truely entertaining and (for those who need it) informative book. Lesbians may, indeed, have a predisposition to like it because the themes are more immediate and personal, but all readers can relate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Just for Lesbians 7. Juni 2000
Von Sahara
Format:Taschenbuch
I am not a lesbian; I loved this book. It's a story of survival and struggle, the heroine just happens to be a lesbian too. The prose is simple. No doubt there were times when I would have liked Ms. Brown to delve a little more deeply about the concepts and values she is trying to explore. On the other hands prose like this leaves the reader free to think what she/he wants to without being limited by the author. This book is a classic. A lot better than much of the pseudo stuff that passes for literature these days. After all big words and boring passages do not literature or granduer make. Thank you Ms. Brown for writing Rubyfruit Jungle.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Simple style, Excellent concept 30. Dezember 1999
Von "ujikera"
Format:Taschenbuch
This book was recommended to me by a friend, and when I read the back I wasn't sure I was going to like it. However, once I picked it up, it was impossible to stop. I loved this book... the writing style was simple, though, and it tends to be predictable, but it conveys a message that we all must listen to: tolerance must be taught to our children. All homophobic people, and all str8 and gay people should read this book... it is educational in many ways and a wonderful read.
