    The IHOP Papers (Ali Liebegott)

    Rate this media item:


    • Liebegott’s debut novel is a coming-of-age coming-out in the tradition of Rita Mae Brown’s Rubyfruit Jungle, but here, the portrait of an artist as punk waitress is more a celebration of sexuality than humanity. Twenty-year-old Francesca is a recovering drunk who finds comfort in cutting herself and harbors fantasies of her beautiful AA sponsor, Maria; her former philosophy teacher, Irene; and a soap opera heroine. “I wanted everything: Irene’s cheekbones, empathy, and wisdom… the sheer beauty and curves of Maria—and the impossibility of Hope from Days of Our Lives,” she confesses. Having followed Irene to San Francisco, Francesca lands a job at the International House of Pancakes, dreams of becoming “the kind of waitress who can carry five plates on each arm and glide around the room doing a dance of pancakes” and works on her memoir about losing her virginity and never quite finding love. The Lambda Literary Award–winning Liebegott (for her book-length poem The Beautifully Worthless) offers strikingly lyrical moments in an otherwise frank narrative of a writer teetering between adolescence and adulthood.
