And Say Hi to Joyce-P345906/2 (Next)

Deb Price, Author, Joyce Murdoch, With Doubleday Books $23.95 (353p) ISBN 978-0-385-47365-1
This book collects Price's engaging and spirited column about gay and lesbian life in America, which in 1992 began running in the conservative Detroit News and now appears in over 40 papers. She visits a gay rodeo (participants' T-shirts read ``I've fallen and can't giddyup''); invokes Bugs Bunny's flirtations with Elmer Fudd in discussing the rise of gay studies; and takes careful aim at the ban on gays in the military, at antiquated, selectively enforced sodomy laws and at the inflammatory rhetoric of prominent conservatives like Pat Robertson. Price's analyses of such diverse issues are grounded in her relationship with Murdoch-the debut column confronted the question ``how do I introduce the woman I've lived with for six years?'' Murdoch, also a journalist, discusses the substantial impact of the column (one chapter is called ``Why Angry Men Can't Spell''), emphasizing in good-humored prose the importance-and the rarity-of ``a gay voice'' in mainstream journalism.
