|Plot Summary of Sexing the Cherry|
|"Jordan is an orphan in the 17th century who is taken in by the Dog Woman, a large, ignorant, and fearful woman. She carries out a lot of self-righteous violence, and he retreats into his own fantasies, which include the mystical world of the Twelve Dancing Princesses. The end of the novel flashes forward to the twentieth century, where Jordan mysteriously reappears. The novel deals with many issues of gender and sexuality."
Judy Berman, Resident Scholar
