Industry Reviews

To lead off her anthology of lesbian literature, Faderman (English and Lesbian Studies/California State Univ., Fresno; Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers, not reviewed, etc.) has chosen...Montaigne. He's followed immediately by Rousseau and William Cullen Bryant in a brief first section called "Men's Writing on Romantic Friendship." Later, Freud makes an appearance under "Men's Writing on a Man Trapped in a Woman's Body." These short but thoughtful extracts provide cultural context for a generous collection that seeks to identify a lesbian literary sensibility. The selections - from 16th-century poet Katherine Fowler Philips to modern writers like Jeannette Winterson, Rita Mae Brown, Adrienne Rich, Audre Lord, and others - are arranged in themed sections, e.g., "Carnivorous Flowers: The Literature of Exotic and Evil Lesbians" and "In the Closet: The Literature of Lesbian Encoding."
