Jane DeLynn

Writer

separator

New York-based contemporary lesbian writer who has written plays, journalistic pieces, librettos and novels. She made her debut in the UK with Don Juan in the Village (1990), which depicts a cruising first-person narrator who describes in unromantic detail her sexual adventures with women, many of them not successful.

The novel was viewed as a more "realistic" portrayal of lesbian sexual relationships than many lesbian romantic novels make them out to be. DeLynn's other writings include Some Do (1978), In Thrall (1982), Real Estate (1988), Bad Sex is Good (1998) and Leash (2001). She lives in Saint Louis.
