Abstract

On a Lesbian Relationship with Musicology Suzanne G. Cusick, Sound Effects Emily Wilbourne he first time I read Suzanne I was in a library, crouched on the floor between the stacks. It was 1997, and I had come in search of Queering the Pitch, but until I found the volume and slipped it from the shelf, I hadn't really dared believe it existed. But, no, there it was. With the book in hand I sank to the floor and scanned the table of contents. My eye paused for a second on "Sapphonics," but the following essay had the word "lesbian" in the title, and I flipped through. The chapter begins, as you probably know, in Italian, a language that I had but begun to learn. As I stumbled through the complicated syntax of the opening lines I caught at her struggle to express herself: she held up a mirror and claimed to know me. Her words cut me open from head through groin, like music sometimes can, exposing my vulnerable inner surfaces to the richness of an unknown world. § § § The first time I wrote to Suzanne I was in Italy, in a dingy Internet café
