A startling, dark, and wryly eloquent retelling of the American Dream. Who'd have thought a professor's life could be such a gripping page-turner? -- Emma Donoghue, author of ROOM and SLAMMERKIN
How one woman used her good looks to land the girl of her dreams, and found a career where she could use her brains instead of her breasts. Today Lillian Faderman is a distinguished academic; her early days among Holocaust-scarred relatives and lesbian pimps on Sunset Strip are a testament to a personal vision in the face of historical struggle -- Sarah Schulman, author of THE COSMOPOLITANS, RAT BOHEMIANS and MY AMERICAN HISTORY
A remarkable tale of emergence, bold and exciting, and wonderfully told -- Vivian Gornick, author of FIERCE ATTACHMENTS
This riveting autobiography is vivid, honest, generous, compassionate, and sensuous all at once. Its strength lies in its understanding of historical moments that are important to all women and its ability to make them come alive in a very personal way for each one of us -- Chitra Divakaruni, author of THE VINE OF DESIRE and THE UNKNOWN ERRORS OF OUR LIVES
An incredible memoir of a damaged mother and her observant daughter. Lillian Faderman has written with an amazing voice, a clear-eyed view, and wisdom on how we both save and surmount the past. Hers is a life that is truly worth recording and sharing with all of us. The photos alone are worth the price of admission. -- Amy Tan, author of THE VALLEY OF AMAZEMENT, THE BONESETTER'S DAUGHTER and THE JOY LUCK CLUB
