About the book:

In her introduction to this anthology, Nisa Donnelly describes the particular bond between mothers and their lesbian daughters: "We are the women our mothers warned us about and, at the same time, the women they made us." This collection examines the complexities of a lesbian's first woman-to-woman relationship. Linda Smukler's poem "St. Francis" suggests that the mother is the primary object of all kinds of contradictory love: love as a tease, as an unexpected caress, as beauty, as a scream. Lucy Jane Bledsoe's essay "Searching for the Mythic Mother Mentor" describes the author's desire to find a lesbian forebear in her own family. "Poa Poa is Livng Breathing Light" is Kitty Tsui's record of finding such a strong female character in her grandmother. Among the other contributors to this book are Judy Grahn, Hillary Mullins, Donna Allegra and newcomers Terrie Akemi-Hamazaki and G. L. Morrison. --Rebecca Brown
