"Molly is as vivid and funny as Huckleberry Finn. Back in the late 1970s everyone in the Women's Collective at uni had read Rubyfruit, which is why Rita in Educating Rita is so named. It provoked snobbery then, and probably still now: a book that makes you laugh so much cannot be serious literature. But Rubyfruit has a lot of serious points to make and is great fun along the way" ( Guardian)
"The breakthrough lesbian novel" ( Washington Post)
"Tough-talking, tenderhearted" ( New York Times)
"A bawdy tale about growing up lesbian" ( Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
"I found myself laughing hysterically, then sobbing uncontrollably just moments later. A powerful story... A truly incredible book" ( The Boston Globe)
A classic lesbian coming-out novel about the determined, gutsy and inspirational Molly Bolt
