From the Back Cover:

Yvonne Zipter describes the essays in this book as "a lovely melange of preprocessed material and fresh stuff, sort of alike a Betty Crocker cake mix." She blends snapshots of daily lesbian life and ironic self-portraits-from her popular syndicated column, "Inside Out"-with new sketches of challenging subjects like safe sex and therapy, filtered through her quirky and humorous lens. Zipter's affectionate focus on interpersonal relationships creates a whimsical portrait of lesbian culture. Her light banter explores numerous entanglements, with families (biological and otherwise), communities, lovers, ex-lovers, pets, and therapists.

"In Ransacking the Closet, Yvonne Zipter details the hilarious, everyday, ordinary existence of everyday, ordinary lesbians in ways that the historians will never capture. Because they don't even know what questions to ask. And because they're not nearly as funny as Yvonne . . . If you want to know what lesbians 'do,' read this." -Shelly Roberts, nationally syndicated columnist and author of The Dyke Detector

"While there are many things lesbians do with their mouths, Yvonne Zipter reminds us that laughing out loud is in the top ten." -Jennifer Camper, cartoonist and author of Rude Girls and Dangerous Women
