Valencia is the fast-paced account of one girl's search for love and high times in the drama-filled dyke world of San Francisco's Mission District. Michelle Tea records a year lived in a world of girls: there's knife-wielding Marta, who introduces Michelle to a new world of radical sex; Willa, Michelle's tormented poet-girlfriend; Iris, the beautiful boy-dyke who ran away from the South in a dust cloud of drama; and Iris's ex, Magdalena Squalor, to whom Michelle turns when Iris breaks her heart.

I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
This rent girl memoir is dangerous. Unrepentantly sexy. As if Scott Fitzgerald was a dyke and lived in the Mission before Google ate its soul.
Michelle Tea has been a part of the San Francisco writing bohemia, sex worker activism, and queer scene for years, one of the founders of Sister Spit, and boy, she has some stories to tell. Blood-spattered love affairs, corporate sh*t-heads behind closed doors, and friends who stick with her through it all.
Abby Craden reads Valencia with searing bravado. Hold on tight.
