What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

In a moment in which we are again invited to see the red-state South as backward, brutal, and banal, here comes Jaime Harker's book. Her inventive use of feminist print institutions connects a diverse set of places and players and allows Harker to offer a much-needed look at the complex culture of southern lesbian feminism that has evolved since the 1970s. The fact that she writes not only with insight but also with genuine affection is sweet icing on a delicious—and much needed—cake."—Trysh Travis, author of The Language of the Heart



In this essential study of southern literature, Jaime Harker uncovers the complex networks of affiliation, sometimes antagonistic and sometimes loving, that shaped southern lesbian feminism, and the rich literary archive that women in these networks produced. A must-have for any reader." —Michael Bibler, Louisiana State University
