Reviews

"A diverse and lively anthology of popular lesbian and bisexual authors writing about the multifaceted phenomenon of coming out." -- "Kirkus""Sometimes funny, at other times full of pathos, these coming-out stories are unfailingly moving." -- "Booklist""Each of these tales -- and the women behind them -- startle and move us in miraculous ways. This collection of thirty-one tales -- cantankerous, humorous, sometimes bitter, often fortuitous, sometimes regretful, and mostly relieved and satisfied -- forces us to grapple with the hard realities and the alluring mysteries of what it means to be a sexual person -- of many hues and ambitions -- in the world today." -- Michael Bronski"Even family needs a woman like that!" -- Rita Mae Brown"A book of writers' coming out stories! Now we need a CD of singers' coming out songs, an exhibition of painters' coming out paintings, a ballet of choreographers' coming out dances, etc., to go with this exaltation." -- Kate Clinton"I hated to see these stories end. I wanted to write each of the writers and say, 'Thank you for your honesty. You helped me understand more about the immeasurable ways we are human.'" -- Toi Derricotte
