Brief short stories centering on the feminine voice
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The brief short stories in this collection attempt to explain the problems faced by lesbians. They examine a range of issues, including celibacy, family, and relations with women and men; each tries to focus on the loneliness of being single and the inner strength needed in a hostile society. Unfortunately, almost all the stories miss the mark; though the authors try hard to make situations realistic, the stories lack character development, plot, and outcome. They are also alarmingly brief and choppy; several by Martinac stop abruptly, leaving the reader disappointed: What really happened here? Libraries with lesbian/gay literature collections would be better served by Lesbian Bedtime Stories (Tough Dove Bks., 1989) and Nisa Donnelly's The Bar Stories ( LJ 3/15/89).
