Bledsoe, Lucy Jane. Working Parts (Seattle: Seal Press, 1997) 195 p.
Pam is a voluptuous and energetic librarian at a branch of the Berkeley Public Library. She flirts a bit with a lesbian woman who is in the library for tutoring in the Literacy Program Office, but she is so helpful she doesn’t even realize her patron cannot read. “Pam in the library was like milk and sugar in bitter tea” (p. 44).
