Academy Award winner Anna Paquin narrates Rita Mae Brown’s pathbreaking novel Rubyfruit Jungle, available for the first time ever in audio.
A landmark coming-of-age novel that launched the career of one of this country’s most distinctive voices, Rubyfruit Jungle remains a transformative work since its original publication almost fifty years ago.
In bawdy, moving prose, Rita Mae Brown tells the story of Molly Bolt, the adoptive daughter of a dirt-poor Southern couple who boldly forges her own path in America. With her startling beauty and crackling wit, Molly finds that women are drawn to her wherever she goes—and she refuses to apologize for loving them back.
This literary milestone continues to resonate with its message about being true to yourself and, against the odds, living happily ever after.
Anna Paquin made her acting debut portraying Flora McGrath in the romantic drama film The Piano, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of eleven. Continuing to perform prominent roles into adulthood, she later played the lead role of Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s vampire drama series True Blood, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. Among many other accolades, Paquin has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
