Tales from the Dyke Side
ISBN: 0934678715 New Victoria Publishers. 1996 Chicago writer Jorjet Harper takes off once again with her unique blend of humor and wry commentary. In this book, the author of Lesbomania continues her exploration of the growing lesbian cultural panorama. A true believer in the slogan "We are Everywhere," Harper finds lesbians in places you never even thought to look.
This time, her hilarious offbeat imagination tackles such topics as the secret lesbian life of the Loch Ness Monster, the puzzle of the lesbian vampire craze, evidence that the Renaissance movement in Europe was started by fat blonde lesbians, and scientific research on lesbian lizards and gay fruitflies.
These side-splitting spoofs, reports from the front, and real-life stories illuminate what it's like to be a lesbian in our changing times.
