This collection focuses on class discrim-ination as it is experienced by the lesbian community. Growing up poor, being poor, or in some cases choosing to be poor bring with it the experience of ostracism even within one's own group, whether it is based on race, gender, religion, or sexual preference. Many of the authors write of eating day-old bread or the leftover fruits and vegetables that the grocer couldn't sell. Some even include recipes for foods that they grew up on or invented out of necessity in their adult years. Others write of being presumed to be poor even though they are educated and temporarily out of work. Unfortunately, the essays are not cohesive, and many are poorly written. The book is also seriously handicapped by the absence of an introduction to acquaint readers with the topic of class prejudice within the lesbian community. Nevertheless, women's studies collections should consider.
