We’re discussing the novel Something Better Than Home with author Leona Beasley and panelist/author Cheryl Head. This 2018 Lambda Literary Award finalist in Lesbian Fiction depicts the life of a young lesbian coming of age and coming out in the 1970s South. Born with a wit, imagination and an insatiable desire to be herself, Onnie Armstrong crowns herself king in her small backyard in Eleven Light City. But being a king isn’t what a proper Southern girl should desire.
