Florence King: Funny and Politically Incorrect

Florence King, a self-described "conservative lesbian feminist," had an acerbic sense of humor in the tradition of Dorothy Parker and H. L. Mencken. In her 1989 collection, Reflections in a Jaundiced Eye, she wrote: "Pretending to be humorous is easy and a great many people are doing it." When it came to humor, Florence King was no pretender. No fan of political correctness, I was one of her readers. (Florence King died on January 7, 2016. She was 80.)
