"Interviewing women from Spokane to Maine, Barrett sketches a shadowy outline of an invisible nation, a lesbian nation. . . . An earnest effort, bursting with feminist spirit."-- Kirkus ReviewsFrom Library Journal:
This book offers a view of contemporary lesbian lives in the United States. The author interviewed 125 women nationwide who have chosen other women as lovers and/or life partners. She uses excerpts from these interviews to present the joys and problems confronting women who must reconcile their personal lives with a society that often ignores or despises them. The issues of family relationships, religion, the workplace, parenting, social life, and culture offer insight into the diversity of lesbian communities and lifestyles. Unlike Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon's Lesbian/Woman (LJ 8/72), which provides a historical perspective, this gives personal stories that break down stereotypes and help readers to understand women who may be their friends, relatives, neighbors, or co-workers. Recommended for most collections.
