Abstract:A book on motorcycle repair that's easy to read and follow and includes a special photo section of the Dykes on Bikes at a San Francisco Gay Pride. An anthology of prose and poetry by lesbian writers that takes on life's many facets and ranges from the issue-oriented to the nonpolitical. A rip-roaring collection of short stories set in Texas, whose collection of characters includes lesbians, gay men, and heterosexuals. The memoirs of an adult child of an alcoholic as memorable for its original artwork as for its hard-hitting narrative. The memoir of a preacher's daughter coming of age in 1940s and 1950s Texas, by a lesbian author noted for taking the specific and making it universal. A book of poems that poignantly expresses the grief felt when a spouse dies, but in this case the grief is magnified because the deceased's family will not acknowledge that their daughter was a lesbian, and they reject the surviving poet-lover and her sorrow. An honest and compassionate account of a lesbian writer's struggle to balance her manic-depression with her creativity. A directory of small publishers who, as women, have started presses which are often too small or too unusual to be listed in other directories.
