reviewed We Walk the Back of the Tiger on
Smoke-free home. Cover worn some. Lesbian novel. Back cover says: "It is 1974 in the CA coastal town of Santa Clarinda. With the women's movement beginning to erupt all around her, Cara Doherty becomes the administrator of the university's fledgling Women's Center. Neil Norman, 18 yrs old, is pumping gas and dealing drugs in Santa Clarinda. A customer gives Neil a gun for drugs, and Neil exults in his newfound power--an unimagined power that can make his most cherished fantasies real. Marti McDavid is a new divorcee, new to the women's movement, new to her love for Cara. She is not new to drugs. She is a customer of Neil's. Young women vanish from the streets of Santa Clarinda. And the live of Cara, Marti, and Neil explode in the events that transform their lives and galvanize the entire city. You will not soon forget Partricia A. Murphy's complex, riveting portrait of Neil Norman. You will not soon forget "We Walk the Back of the Tiger"."
