Event Description

Can’t get enough dyke drama?

Join us for a reading and conversation with Jenny Fran Davis, author of Dykette!

In Davis’ new novel, Sasha and Jesse embark on a ten-day New Years getaway with another, older lesbian couple, and a third pair that Sasha simultaneously longs for and loathes. Jealousy, psychodrama, havoc, and hilarity ensue. Dykette is an exploration of lesbian dynamics that delights in its own unseriousness.

Praise for Dykette:

“A bold and refreshingly zany novel of gay millennial life in New York, Dykette is sharp and unsparing as a play piercing needle. Bound to set countless group chats afire, this book signals Jenny Fran Davis as a writer to watch.”
Sarah Thankam Mathews, author of the National Book Award finalist All This Could Be Different

“A hilarious, astute, and captivating tour of a young femme’s interior life over the course of one long weekend upstate. Dykette is a portrait of a certain corner of queer culture that is part satire, part ode, and full of delightful cringe. Davis’s unrelenting scrutiny is a consummate pleasure; I gasped with laughter and delight on nearly every page.”
Melissa Febos, author of Girlhood

Dykette stared directly into my soul, pinned me against a wall, and made me look inward, consider the sharp and ugly parts of myself. A novel that can accomplish that complexity while also being wickedly funny, achingly sensitive, readable as hell–simply put, Jenny Fran Davis is a talent.”
—Jean Kyoung Frazier, author of Pizza Girl
