The Butches of Madison County

1995, possibly first edition, from Laugh Lines Press
Ellen Orleans
The Butches of Madison County
Bought new for $7.95
Slightly worn paperback 

I remember being bored by both the novel and the movie of Bridges of..., which this obviously is a lesbian parody of.  I didn't find this book hilarious, but I did enjoy the skewing and skewering of the "tragic romance" and pseudo-intellectual pretentiousness.  Notable for an early example of a man, the farmwife's husband, who lives more of his life online than in reality.
