I picked this up because of its intriguing title, and in complete ignorance of Bright's history in North American sexual politics. Unfortunately, she is not a good enough writer to engage a stranger like me and although she's clearly led a colourful life and has known many remarkable people, she could not bring most of them to life for me. In fact the book gives little or no sense of Bright herself as a person, or (except for the early chapters describing life with her unstable mother) of the people in her life.

This memoir may speak to someone with an interest in Bright's activism, her publications and issues relating to feminism, LGBT culture and pornography. I must look for her magazine On Our Backs. She's good with titles. :-)
