A Woman Like That: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis collection of literate, intensely personal stories -- sometimes heart-wrenching, often exhilarating -- illuminates the breadth and variety of experiences known as "coming out". The authors -- many of them well-known artists, writers, activists, and critics -- ranging in age from twenty to seventy, are from all classes and races and from all across America. From the teenager institutionalized for her passion for women to the mother who must risk losing her young sons -- from the cautious academic to the raucous, liberated femme -- each woman represented here tells of forging a unique path toward the difficult but emancipating recognition of herself. Together they offer a vision that is witty, courageous, and memorable, a rich tapestry of lesbian and bisexual experience in the United States over the past half-century.
