Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Valerie Taylor stands out, for the politics and realism she packs into her tight little stories... Taylor’s real subversion is to continue her heroine’s story in another book. Like Ann Bannon before her, Taylor unravels her earlier book’s hetero conclusion in a sequel—the tellingly named Return to Lesbos." —Lambda Literary
