it was amazing
bookshelves: must-read, dyke-stuff, po-mo-craziness
Recommended for: everyone
Read in January, 2007

I haven't read anything I loved this much in a very long time. Mostly stream-of-consciousness and poetry, but with a few really amazing stories mixed in, it spans the entire range of lesbian experience, defying convention in every way possible. I loved the story with Kathleen Hanna in it. I loved the girl who talks to Jesus in dolphin form. I especially loved the odd gender-neutral girl growing up into the classy dyke in pinstriped suits. In fact, I'm not really sure what I didn't love. Everyone should find a copy of this book and read it. It's really that good.
