Format: Hardcover
I read this book when I was 20 years old, way back in 1974. I am heterosexual all the way. However, Jill Johnston changed my life. A paraphrased quote from the book about "why marry a doctor? why not be a doctor?" shook up my brain and prompted a long journey through pre-med studies then medical school, residency and a long, happy, successful career as an Internal Medicine phIysician. I have served as a mentor to many female students (high school, college pre-med and medical students) since that time who now take the concept of women in medicine for granted. This was not the case in 1974. Many thanks to Jill Johnston for this woman's liberation and for being ahead of her time.

Format: Paperback
Very well-written, with a constant undertone of humor. Read this to clear your mind after you've had to read prissy Right-wing nonsense. It's amazing to look back and remember how joyous the feminist and gay rights movements were in the late 60s and early 70s. Proof that political writing can aspire to be literature. Favorite chapter: the Making of a Lesbian Chauvinist. 283 pages, bibliography.

Format: Paperback
I read this over a decade ago. But this book was written way, way back. It should be read and appreciated as a classic lesbian text, but who knows how much insight it would offer today. In this book, Johnston analyzes the case of Dora from a lesbian-feminist perspective. She also discusses lesbian invisibility in the times of the supposed countercultural 1960s and the Beatnik era. This book is repetitive in many parts and not well-edited. Still, as an old-school text, it should be appreciated. ...
