Margaret Truman: Murder at the national gallery. New York: Fawcett 1996 Karin Kallmaker: One degree of separation. Tallahassee: Bella Books 2003 (About the author: "Karin Kallmaker admits that her first crush on a woman was the local librarian. Just remembering the pencil through the loose, attractive bun makes her warm. She was perhaps more permanently marked by watching that same librarian, some years later, argue respectfully but passionately with a man who had thrown away a book he'd checked out, claiming it was obscene". - About the book: "Marian, the lesbian librarian, works in the library in Iowa City. Being a librarian means being a keeper of dreams. Her life's passion is books and history, though she'd like to find a woman to feel passionate about and sets out on a regimen of dating".
