This one took me forever to read; not because it was bad- quite the opposite. It's very dense and informative without ever being too dry, and so it just wasn't one I could rush through. It's an excellent overview of the modern history of lesbians in America.

However, it was written in the early 90s, and of course, only covers up until that point. So much has happened in the last 20 years; I'd love to see a revised and updated edition.
