Indeed, DRESS HER IN INDIGO. The treatment of the gay male characters struck me as a bit clumsily striving-to-be-fair, but the lesbians in INDIGO and particularly in FOX are definitely in for a hard time, both in event and analysis. (I might quote from FOX, particularly, when next I have it at hand while at a computer.) TM

********* He wrote a few Mexican ones, didn't he? I know that most of DRESS HER INDIGO was set in Mexico, and there were homosexual guys and girls in it, and Travis gets the pleasure of punching out both. I didn't find his treatment of homosexuals extremely heavy-handed in this book.
