Overview

Like Phoebe Gloeckner's Diary of a Teenage Girl, Michelle Tea's Rent Girl is an illustrated novel about a young dyke's adventures in and out of the sex industry on both the East and West Coasts. A side story to Tea's other novels, The Passionate Mistakes and Intricate Corruption of One Girl in America and Valencia, this book explores in depth her ambivalence to the sex industry, which she found to be an exciting outlaw occupation one minute and a traumatic existential nightmare the next.

Editorial Reviews

Jessa Crispin
A gifted writer, Tea keeps the prose bright despite her gritty topic. Laurenn McCubbin's provocative, confrontational drawings -- done in vivid hues of black and red, the women often staring out at the reader -- make for a disarming combination with Tea's laid-back writing. Painful at times, silly at others, Rent Girl presents prostitution simply as a paycheck job, one whose crazy coworkers and clients will feel familiar to anyone who's had a day job.
