Two great book titles today, one of which is an actual non-fiction tome and the other is . . . not. Here’s a fast quiz, choose one:
"Teen-Aged Dope Slaves and Reform School Girls"
"College Girls: Bluestockings, Sex Kittens, and Co-Eds, Then and Now"
If you chose the first one as being the comic book, (ahem, graphic novel) then you win. Congratulations. And yes, it is a real comic, published by Eclipse in 1989 and written by Dead Mullaney. I confess I never had the time or inclination to pick it up, but what a title.
College Girls: Bluestockings, Sex Kittens, and Co-Eds, Then and Now, by Lynn Peril, I also have not actually read (again, what a title) but Caitlin Flanagan has, and she’s written an excellent review of it for the Atlantic Monthly brought to you care of Powells.com’s Review-a-Day column. It’s definitely worth looking at.
