[very nice copy, NO remainder mark; jacket mildly rubbed with a bit of surface-scratching]. "What Tom Wolfe did for astronauts and Roger Angell did for baseball, [the authors] do for lesbians in this landmark book. Long misperceived as a separatist coven, a default option, or a sort of ladies' auxiliary to the gay men's movement, lesbian life has achieved a new visibility in the past few years, [but] there's been surprisingly little understanding of the divesity and richnes of lesbian experience. This funny, lively, and perceptive book will change all that." (Did it? It might be worth noting, from an historical-context perspective, that Ellen DeGeneres came out the following year.)
