“I’ve been constantly dealing with this book for the last three months,” said Curb, who figures she has made 78 public appearances on the book’s behalf, including university lectures and bookstore signings. She and Manahan have been interviewed on a number of talk shows and were spotlighted on ABC’s network news.
“The reaction has been fantastic and fascinating.” said Grier. ‘”Lesbian Nuns’ seems to have become part of the folklore culture.”
She recently granted permission to Walt Disney Productions to use the book as a prop in a forthcoming film starring Bette Midler and Nick Nolle. The movie is tentatively titled “Down and Out in Beverly Hills.”
“Of course, you don’t know what will end up on the cutting room floor,” Grier said, “but they want to have a scene with Bette Midler reading ‘Lesbian Nuns’ by the swimming pool.”
