Interview with Jewelle Gomez


At The San Francisco Gate, Jewelle Gomez talks about her vampire novel, The Gilda Stories, on the book’s 25th anniversary. ‘The character is black. She’s a lesbian. And she’s a vampire,’ the publisher said. ‘That’s too complicated.’ Gomez laughs as she says this now, and it’s a deep laugh, a real one. ‘I thought, “Well, I’m two of those three. What are you trying to say?’'” (Thanks, Less Lee!)
