Someone Should Write This Novel

I'm part of a young women's discussion group that I've been referring to as "Talk Club" (as in: the first rule of Talk Club is that you do not talk . . . oh, nevermind). Last meeting, we all brought in memoir pieces - mine was about learning to cook, and I'll post it here if someone gives me even minimal provocation - and one of the other girls had a fabulous line in her piece that's begging to be turned into a novel. "Imagine the People interview: queer feminist radical names highschool boyfriend as greatest lifetime influence!" Can't you imagine a terrific, biting, witty novel of social satire about sexual identity, political correctness, the media, celebrity and gender roles just from that one line? I can, but I don't know enough about the radical lesbian community to handle it with the grace, humor and depth it deserves. If you find an aspiring queer feminist radical who's looking for a novel concept, or just one who's interested in helping me do some research, send 'em my way, okay?
