Author Reading: Lori Horvitz, THE GIRLS OF USUALLY

Lori Horvitz grew up ashamed of her Eastern European Jewish roots,
confused about her sexuality, and idolizing the "shiksa in her living
room," a blonde all-American girl whose photo came in a double frame and
was displayed next to a family photo from a bar mitzvah. Unable to join
the "happy blonde families," she becomes a "hippie chick" who travels
the world in search of … something. The Girls of Usually
chronicles each trip, each romance, each experiment in reinventing
herself that draws her closer to discovering the secret door through
which she can escape from deep-rooted patterns and accept her own
cultural, ethnic, and sexual identity.
