Synopsis

Rubyfruit Jungle is the first novel (1973) by Rita Mae Brown, remarkable for its explicit lesbianism. The novel is a bildungsroman/autobiographical (some have suggested picaresque) account of Brown's youth and emergence as a lesbian author. The term "ruby fruit jungle" is slang for the female genitals.
