This is a classic book, and now that Del and Phyllis will be legally married on 6/17/08 in California... i'm sure it will be more of a collector's item.

From the back cover:
The authors of Lesbian/Woman have lived the experiences they tell about in this extraordinary, very important book. Together for over twenty-five years, theirs is an intimate story of love, and more - for Lesbian/Woman shares with us the struggle of all women who choose to love other women. A definitive, essential work for understanding the lesbian as a whole person, not just a sexual being, this highly regarded classic depicts what it's like to grow up gay, to be a lesbian mother, to face the everyday problems of living, loving, and surviving in a male-dominated world. Candid and revealing, filled with fascinating personal and social history, this revised and up-dated edition also provides an authoritative review of the gains and setbacks of the past ten years, including the precedent-setting legal battles, new information on sexuality, and the increased sense of pride, self-acceptance, and freedom of the gay woman in the 1980s.
