Give it to Me
by Ana Castillo
Recently divorced, Palma, a forty-three-year-old Latina, takes stock of her life when she reconnects with her gangster younger cousin recently released from prison. Her sexual obsession with him flares as she checks out her other options, but their family secrets bring them together in unexpected ways. In this wildly entertaining and sexy novel, Castillo creates a memorable character with a flare for fashion, a longing for family, and a penchant for adventure. Give It to Me is “Sex in the City” for a Chicana babe who’s looking for love in all the wrong places.
A main character (Palma) is attracted to people of multiple genders. Give it to Me won the Lambda Literary Award for Bisexual Fiction in 2015. Author Ana Casillo identifies as bisexual.
