Women on Women: An Anthology of American Lesbian Short Fiction
Women on Women An Anthology of American Lesbian Short Fiction Author:Naomi Holoch, Joan Nestle This groundbreaking collection brings together 28 stunning stories by literary talents never before assembled in a single volume. With contributions from both established and bright new voices in lesbian fiction, Women on Women ranges from the subtlety and restraint of Willa Cather's "Tommy, the Unsentimental" to Sapphire's dar... more »ing and highly erotic "Eat" and Valerie Miner's suspenseful "Trespassing." Some of the stories are universal in theme -- the joy and excitement of new romance, the ageless problems of family life, and the pain of lost love and of death. And many are written by or about members of racial, ethnic, and other minorities within the gay community. These are stories that offer stirring, eloquent, often passionate insights into the lesbian experience in a long-overdue collection that represents the best of lesbian short fiction from past to present.
