Review Quotes
These lesbian writers carry many other labels they do not share in ethnicity, politics, and artistic convictions, which may be more important to some of them. All of them, however, agree by appearing here to join in making the rich lesbian contributions to our literature visible. Here are fifteen grand appetizers for the feast of good books these writers have already served us and they promise more to come. - Jane Rule, author of Desert of the Heart and This Is Not For You
