    One thought on “1979: A Big Year in a Small Town”

    1. LOVE it. 1979 knocked me sideways. How did I not hear about this book before? HOW? This is a staggeringly close account to my own teenage lesbian school teacher stalker experience. I was laughing myself silly with recognition. This:"I learned her timetable by heart. At any given hour, I knew which class she was teaching and its finishing time, so that I could get a glimpse of her for a few moments as she passed by."This:"I wrote her millions of letters and poems. I would go to the staffroom ever [...]

    2. Unflinchingly honest account of pubescent angst. I found this more interesting knowing beforehand a little of her chart as after reading her other book I looked at her blogs and she is into astrology. It made a world of sense astrologically, all those inner planets in Scorpio! I laughed, had tears in my eyes more than once, gasped, cringed, thoroughly enjoyed it in other words!

    3. This book may only cover a year of her life, but Rhona Cameron covers the year in which she became an adult. When her father passed away I had to choke back the tears (I was in public), it was so moving and so heart-wrenchingly painful. She perfectly describes the pain of being a teenager, the insecurity and desperate longing to belong whilst wanting to maintain one's individuality. I can't imagine what it must be like to be gay in a small Scottish community, but I can now understand it. She tru [...]

    4. "A candid, open-hearted memoirartling" says the cover & indeed to begin with it wasough not in a good way! I nearly gave up after the first two chapters as the recounting of the twelve year-old Rhona's "fumblings" (for want of a better word!) with the local heart throb & whichever of his mates he decided to share her with, made me a little uncomfortable.Teenage years aren't easy for anyone but being a lesbian in a small town, Rhona certainly had more angst than most. While most of us wil [...]

    5. It is like reading my own autobiography. The similarities to her childhood/teen years to my childhood/teen years are uncanny. A top read about a small-town lesbian who becomes a famous comedian.

    6. A funny and sad story about a struggle to find true identity, expressing one's youthful feelings towards the same sex, facing sexuality, and expressing one's self.
