BOOK REVIEW: Sex, history & lesbian outlaws

This book, a novelized non-fiction, is a major literary accomplishment. It should cross over into the mainstream because it is takes place at the nexus of the New Left, Women's Liberation, Gay Liberation and the Lesbian Feminist movements — a seldom written-about time period -- and an intersection that embroiled hundreds of thousands of Americans.
