Reviews

"Michelle Tea is the literary purveyor of fucking bring-it."--SF Weekly

"To walk away from Sister Spit is to discover a constellation of roughly-hewn stars . . . "--Los Angeles Review of Books

"This book is a queer anthem. It flashes bright neon lights and blows out plumes of dirty glitter."--Autostraddle

"This riotous collage edited by a Sister Spit cofounder celebrates the acclaimed underground lesbian-feminist roadshow. Poetry, art, stories and snippets of self-reflection from the collective's rotating membership honor this cultural institution in its signature provocative fashion."--Ms. Magazine

"Sister Spit: Writings, Rants and Reminiscence from the Road is a genuine, honest and funny collection of stories. It captures the provocative, brazen and high-energy nature of Sister Spit, though it reads like a personal journal."--Art Animal

"Raw, real, and riotous . . . Critical and demanding, [Sister Spit] asks us to imagine a better world and then do whatever it takes to make our fantasies real."--AlterNet

"The immediacy of the road is brought home . . . and the lightning-fast pace of the selections will engage its target audience of younger dyke readers"--Curve Magazine

"This anthology is a page-turner, and although many of the stories deal with difficult topics like alienation, homophobia and substance abuse, a strong current of self-deprecating humour also runs through the collection."--Cult Magazine

"Edited by award-winning writer and co-founder of Sister Spit, Michelle Tea is the most appropriate editor of a compilation of writing and artwork by "the irreverent, flagrantly queer, hilariously feminist, tough-talking, genre-busting ruffians" who have joined the band on tour."--SF Weekly
