Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work follows a popular publishing trend: giving professional lesbians and gay men space to tell their stories about how sexual orientation and the workplace intersect. Mintz and Rothblum's book gives voice to a vibrant, fascinating faculty of various ages, races, and backgrounds who are all lesbian. These women share their compelling stories, bringing to light experiences ranging from the very closeted to those who have been "out" in their jobs since their interviews. Unlike similar books, which tend simply to present the stories at face value, these editors sought out scholars from several disciplines including literature and queer theory to analyze the narratives. Recommended for academic libraries, as well as for large lesbian and gay collections in public libraries.Jerilyn Veldof, Univ. of Arizona Lib., Tucson
