Women on Women 3: A New Anthology of American Lesbian Fiction (No. 3)
A generation of literary luminaries presents its best work - from the traditional to the transgressive - in this adventurous, engaging new collection. Joan Nestle and Naomi Holoch, the editors of the acclaimed "Women on Women" series, have assembled a third volume of America's best lesbian short fiction - with superb results.
Thirty-two passionate voices sing out from the page, telling their stories in tones ranging from the sweet cadences of Clover Cannady's "blueberry" to the blunt realism of Leslie Feinberg's "One Day at the Mace Factory." An erotic charge runs through the volume, tracing a pattern of desire, from the irresistibly cocky Cat Reeves in Lu Vickers's "Crystal Ball, " through Lexa Rosean's powerful religious rebellion in "A Kosher Megila, " and the vibrant heroines of Lydia Swartz's audacious "What We Do in Bed." Brilliant stylists like Rebecca Brown, Michelle Cliff, Sapphire, Jenifer Levin, and Ann Imbrie present moving narratives of love and loss that complete the collection's emotional and literary range.
