Book Description

11 July 2013
Mainwaring has been leading a gay life in Bay City, courtesy of her wealthy parents' generous allowance. Then she's discovered in the bathroom at the Daughters of the American Pioneers Annual Luncheon, boldly exploring new territory with a female attendee. Maxie gets an ultimatum: move back to the Mainwaring Manse, or pay her own way. Plenty of girls can testify to Maxie's enthusiasm and talent - but can the 'dilettante debutante' earn a paycheck? From gritty school cafeterias to cosmopolitan magazine offices, Maxie is getting valuable hands-on experience...

5.0 out of 5 stars a fun book 18 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fun book. It is a satire that takes place in 1964 and involves ex-debutante Maxie Mainwaring exploring career paths while getting caught up in some mob activities. It is full of earnest exclamations, alliteration, and the vocabulary of the time. The sex scenes are mild but are described with humorous analogies pertinent to the time period.

Besides the horse stories. A deeply enjoyable book, on so many levels. One of the best pieces of fiction about lesbians out there. Seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maxie My Be A Dilettante, But Monica Nolan Is Not 12 Oct 2013
By Erica Friedman - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Monica Nolan's Bay City stories continue to delight.

"Maxie Mainwaring" is a story that exults in the tropes of lesbian literature. No subversion here, just a joyful romp through mid-century pulp novels with humor and insight.
