Pink is something that is very different from the usual hype. It is so refreshing to actually find a book that has another angle to the gay/lesbian scene. The author also uses her poetic ability throughout this very 'pink' book. I feel certain that this is one of those novels that will find itself a big fan base, especially with covering gay and lesbian rights. It looks like Jennifer Harris has a good writing career ahead of her so place this book on your bedside table or pop it in your handbag. Definitely worth a read even if you're not gay yourself.
Pink is a novel of grace notes with the rare misstep…this novel of the future is a gamble that pays off thanks to Harris's sweet and well-drawn narrator.
Poetic and unique in execution, the first-person narrator of Jennifer Harris' debut novel foretells a future based not on what is or was, but what will be when the novel she will write is published.... So poignant are the details and engrossing is the text, the reader forgets the plot is based on fantasy-despite the narrator's constant reminding-yielding a powerfully emotional and unexpected finish.
Pink wraps what has been and what is into a UNIQUE AND COMPELLING story of what will be, Jennifer Harris grounds the reader with her in both time and place presenting a read that is, at one moment in time, poetic, fantastic and fun. A TRUE POETIC READ!
Pink was first published first in 2006 by Haworth Press and republished in 2009 by Bold Strokes Books. Her work has also appeared in the NYQ, HLLQ, Fish Stories Collective II & IV, and the anthology Power Lines from Tia Chucha Press.
