From the Prefatory Note: "We have put together a book of poems that show the scope and intensity of lesbian experience. They were all written by women who define themselves as lesbians. And who have chosen, by publishing their poetry here, to affirm that identity. With us, they - and their poems - belie a simple sexual definition of lesbianism. Our lives have many sides. The poetry expresses them - growing up, sisterhood, sexuality, family, motherhood, work, dying. Myth. Racism. Old age, war, ritual. For us, this range says something essential about the nature, the complexity, the full humanity of our lives. "; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
