Format: Paperback
Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down again. It made me laugh out loud. The stories are cut out of real life, or at least I can identify myself with the different anecdotes.

Format: Paperback
This book is a funny and introspective look into the life of a butch/femme couple. Leslea (high femme extraordinaire) writes about the adventures she and Flash, her beloved butch companion, have wandering around Lesbianville, USA. The book is told through Leslea's funny, Jewish femme point of view. The essays deal with subjects such as a day at the mall (fun for femmes, trauma for butches), having a former nun as your girlfriend, dealing with traumatic parental visits and having a bat attempt to attack you when your butch isn't around. I recommend this book highly for queer and queer friendly people everywhere.

Lelea Newman's book is the first of it's kind in the it's ability to deal with a sexuality that is known for taking itself far too seriously. Ms. Newman's comments on her own life are touching and open, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and keep it there no matter what your sexual orientation.

This is the funniest true to life book I have ever read. It is like listening to a good friend tell you about some hilarous events in her life. I bought three to give away to friends - to make sure I will always have "my" copy.
