Structured around a course in Gay and Lesbian Literature taught by the author, thisĀ little memoir encompasses a broad sweep of experience. Jody uses wit and a deeply humane sensitivity to show how the students' encounter with the readings led her to confront her own lifetime of secrecy. While the story ranges from joy and adventure to pain and sorrow, the overarching message of this well-crafted book is one of love and affirmation.Letter to Emily is not a celebrity tell-all. It is about the daily heroism of ordinary people, who happen to be gay, swimming against a tide of myth, misinformation and social pressure, all in the effort to live ordinary lives.
