Chana Wilson's mom-daughter memoir "Riding Fury Home."
Chana Wilson grew up in the 1950s with a suicidal mother. As an adult, she learned that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments – including electroshock – to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s.
There’s much more to this touching, fascinating story in Riding Fury Home, Chana’s memoir. (Marilyn Pittman interviewed Chana Wilson on Out in the Bay, Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012.)
