    5-0 out of 5 stars The Confession
    I know that a lot of people in the gay community do not think that James McGreevey should be classified as a hero.But as a gay man who struggled with trying to be the "Best Little Boy in Town", I can emphasize with him.Trying to live in a straight world all the while knowing that you are different takes a tremendous toll on your personality and your self worth.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Confession Jim McGreevey
    All of New Jersey and the country were probably anticipating the release of former Governor Jim Mcgreevey's book. Some of the hype may have been due to the scandal involving his sexual encounters. I am completing the book and am very impressed with the wealth of information included.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The people have lost a great man
    Isn't it sad that we dispose of gay people like they were garbage once it is found out that someone is gay?Governor McGreevey was an excellent politician, with a keen intellect.Who knows what good he could have done for the people of this country had he stayed in politics?Instead, we force people like this to resign.This is a great loss to society.Many gay and lesbian people have great gifts to offer and yet...we throw them out with the bath water.It is our loss, not their's. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars wish I had gotten it at the library
    This work was well-drawn, as is all of Bechdel's work.It was also incredibly boring, kind of aimless, self-absorbed catharsis.I also thought we'd get to know more about her father's life, thoughts, feelings...along with hers.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Not your typical family. Terrific drawings.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a fabulous find
    I stumbled into this book and couldn't be happier about it.I knew nothing about Alison Bechdel other than what I read in the author's blurb on the dust cover so I certainly wasn't brought to the book by the lesbian aspect.Nor had I ever read a memoir graphic so that wasn't a hook either.

    This was my first E. Lynn Harris novel.I bought it because it was the only African American fiction at the airport I was in at the time.I completely finished the book over the course of my roundtrip flights, so it is definitely a page turner.Light, easy reading to take your mind off things.

    You can always debate whether this book is "art" or not, but thefact is I am worried about what happened to some of the subjects. Helmut?

    As far as I know, it is the only work that gives such complete instructions for this very important aspect of yoga.It deserves more attention.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the previous reviewer beat me to it
    It's a mistake to start reading this book because it's hard to do anything else. It's a banal statement to say one is impressed with a book for, say, it's style of writing or it's content or because he/she may say something with which you wholeheartedly agree, but I wholeheartedly agree with the Reverend White's words and I confess, it has put fear in my heart. His incredible objectivity--and it cannot have been easy--make it clear that there's a lot of vigilance one is going to need in the days ahead on any number of issues. It was especially helpful to me since I am not a protestant, to know the difference between evangelicalism and fundamentalism. I have a divinity school degree from Berkeley but cannot remember any time the meaning of these two words/concept became an issue.
    5-0 out of 5 stars An Insider Takes Us Deeper Into the Danger of the Christian Right-wing
    Mel White's brand new book, Religion Gone Bad is his latest intimate analysis of the intentions of the extreme religious right-wing of Christianity that's been setting the national agenda for over a decade.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Reverend White is a pioneer for telling the truth
    This is a fascinating book. The Reverend gives an honest portrayal of religious fundamentalism in America. He details how these fanatics preach their hate towards decent and hardworking homosexual people and try to use the pulpit to preach politics. Anyone that preaches bigotry in the name of religion should read "Religion Gone Bad" with an open mind and open heart. ... Read more

    The depth and breadth of the articles included in this compendium are astounding to say the least. In one large volume the authors have included samples of writings representing the theoretical to the practical and the lived experience in a time line from the 19th century through the present. The Reader gives a sense of our shared history from a wide variety of view points which affirms all of our lives. As a transgendered person and college student, I recommend the The Transgender Reader to anyone looking for clues to our hidden culture and the world we struggle in everyday. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The heroine of Sarah Waters's audacious first novel knows herdestiny, and seems content with it. Her place is in her father's seaside restaurant, shucking shellfish and stirring soup, singing all the while. "Although I didn't long believe the story told to me by Mother--that they had found me as a baby in an oyster-shell, and a greedy customer had almost eaten me for lunch--for eighteen years I never doubted my own oysterish sympathies, never looked far beyond my father's kitchen for occupation, or for love." At night Nancy Astley often ventures to the nearby music hall, not that she has illusions of being more than an audience member. But the moment she spies a new male impersonator--still something of a curiosity in England circa 1888--her years of innocence come to an end and a life of transformations begins.Read more

    Too much "alternative" sex that I was unprepared for--I stopped at disc 8.The cover on my version from the public library has a pair of pink shoes on it, which I kept wondering if they were going to have something to do with the title.I have wondered why male crossdressing is so popular, why not female?That's why I got the book, I guess.It somewhat answered my question--it used to be popular.What's in swings out and vice versa.It's a pendulum effect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love, Sex, and Basketball!
    This book is wonderful. Romancing the Zone is a classic book where the main message is dreams and family are the most important in life. You can achieve the impossible if you are in the right frame of mind. Kenna White tells the story of a single mother with dreams of finishing college and her final year of playing womens basketball. Can Liz balance her real life (owning and running her restraunt and keeping tabs on her 19 year old daughter)and shooting hoops and maintaining a near perfect grade point average in college? Not to mention the hots that she may have for her and her daughter's coach...Sheridan Ross. Coach Ross has her own issues: being new head coach and turning last years team into winners. Plus, will her feelings for Liz be enough to keep her around for another season with the Lady Stingers or will she move on to a bigger pond? This book has a sweet story with big secrets. Liz has a few of those...will she tell or not? You will fall in love with all of the characters. This book is very well written which makes an easy read! RTZ is loaded with humor, love, sex, secrets, and basketball! A great combination! This book is well worth the time...which it didn't take long because you don't want to put it down.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Playing with Heart
    There are lots of novels in this genre, dozens and dozens.Some are very good; some are poorly written and edited, poorly presented, barely readable.Made for TV movies are sometimes good, sometimes sappy and romantic, sometimes very bad.Yet every once in a while, there's just nothing else on the tube, and we find ourselves sitting through the type of movie we normally wouldn't select: it's just not our type of story, it's a weepy romance.It's been done before.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you want to understand Lesbianism - Read this book!!
    Lesbian Epiphanies deserves MORE than 5 stars!! The best book out there on understanding WHY some women come out late in life. I being one of them came out in my later years and wondered WHY I missed not coming out earlier. This book from the 25 life studies explains why. It seems we all have [almost] the same or similar stories and making the discovery of being a Lesbian and understanding WHY I was born this way, as I know I was having loved women ALL my life, it just takes a little *push* to finally go over the edge of society's regulations and come out - OUT & PROUD.

    Karol Jensen managed to communicate and clearly explain the life transformation that I experienced around the same age.I was married for over twenty years when I discovered that I experience my most happiestmoments when I was in the company of other women. When I turned 40, I wentthrough a major metomorphisis - realizing that what I truly wanted, myhusband was not capable of giving me, and until I read this book, I hadfeelings of guilt for wanting to be with a woman.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag...
    Julia Glass's Three Junes is a somewhat successful, somewhat disjointed narrative following a Scottish family through two generations, from their own perspective and from those of another whose life intertwines with theirs. The first part of the novel, 'Collies' is by far the strongest and describes how Paul both fell in love with and married Maureen and the aftermath of her death. The chronology, as others have noted, is slightly convoluted, but in this section it is much clearer than later in the novel. It is in these first few pages that I think Glass dazzled the National Book Award committee as her ability to subtley capture Paul's mourning as well as reveal a terrible secret really shows of her skills as an author; these skills, however, desert her in the other two parts of the novel. The second part of the novel is told in the first person through the eyes of Fenno, one of the three boys Paul and Maureen have. His story is by far the most interesting, but somewhat crudely done - the beautiful range of emotion that we experiences in the opening pages is replaced by something I still can't fully describe, other than say everything seems more clumsily done causing me to wonder why Glass even chose to continue her story, as the first part was published originally on its own. Fenno's role as caretaker to Mal, an opera and music critic often seems unbalanced. The final section finds us learning about some characters who we originally only see on the periphery of Fenno's narrative, who presumably are supposed to enhance our understanding of this family. Unfortunately, Glass seems to preoccupied with filling the pages with cliches about love and trying to leave the reader with some deeper understanding of live and relationships that she forgets to really finish her tale. I really do think she should have stopped the story after the first part.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Just okay
    I was disappointed with the novel, based on the fact it was a National Book Award winner.Perhaps it was too "literary" for me, but I found myself not really caring about the characters.Although I'm far from a prude, I felt the parts about the gay character was way more than I needed/wanted to know.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Three Junes -Where did They Get That Name?
    Sometime ago I read my Sunday paper and noted that "Three Junes" was listed as a popular book choice.The title sounded interesting so I bought it.That was 2 months ago and I am still trying to get through the paperback edition.It is difficult to follow the timeline, to understand the characters and where they fit, and to get involved in the storyline.I will finish the book because that's my style.It has not been a book that I could not wait to get back to.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Hoping for moreJake
    This just doesn't make 4 stars, although I was rooting for it."Lesbian" or not it's competition is the general genre of "cop" or "detective thriller", and in that category it doesn't make it as anything new or original; actually it abounds with sterotypes.Sadly, it was too predictable for me, but I fell for Jake.Yes, the scenery descriptions are wonderful, but that "ain't" why I read thrillers.They are "thrillers", after all!I underestand (I think) the role sex plays in novels of this kind, and Ms Hill writes her explicit scenes quite well, too well.They are of erotica not "romance."Explicitness for its own sake is fine and I enjoy it, but here it was over-the-top and unnecessary.We do not need descriptions of digital explorations to have a novel unfold.No pun intended.
    5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST I'VE READ IN A LONG TIME
    this is one of the best books I have read in a very long time, once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Loving the characters i'm hoping for a sequel.

    Editorial Review

    The closer a secret is kept, the more powerful the impact once it is finally revealed. Such is the case with author and activist J.L. King's intriguing look at the lives and lifestyles of black men who sleep with other men but do not consider themselves to be gay. These men live "on the down low," the "DL" for short, and their sexual activities have gained significant notice as the rate of HIV/AIDS infection in black women has skyrocketed, with the vast majority of cases coming from heterosexual sex. King is a veteran of the DL himself and his book serves partly as a social and psychological survey of the other men he has surveyed and partly as highly candid memoir. King was well regarded in his community, popular at his church, successful in his career, and married to a woman who had no idea that his secret life existed. But when she caught him in a lie and with another man, the marriage collapsed and King's long and painful path to self-awareness began. King cites the negative image many socially conservative black men have of homosexuality as an obstacle to those men being honest with their partners and themselves about who they are. Among the more intriguing elements of Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Oh he11 no
    This book be a load o bull****. First off if you sleep with men and you a man, your a fa****, and thats all there is to it. And if your a fa**** with a woman, have some decency and respect, to let her know and get the he11 out of her life, instead of commitin murder by killing her with aids. And on another note; I dont know if its just me, but it seems like the author trying to say the only down low f***s is black guys, so I guess he's never been to the village on west 4th in NY city.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Christine, psychologists
    This book is the other version of Forbidden Love with a Married Man by Dennis Schleicher, which it is a 'must read' for all. His memoir is groundbreaking along with cutting edge, a first of its kind...

    1-0 out of 5 stars low down man

    3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting `How To' and `What With' Manual (3.5*s)
    One could wonder if there is a need for this book? The author makes no attempt to supply any data concerning how widespread the desire or practice is for straight girls wanting to engage with other females. Her data collection seems to be rather limited - hardly scientific. In any event, the book is interesting and informative.
    2-0 out of 5 stars overhyped and basically useless
    Ok lets get down to why you should save your money and NOT get this book. First of all the author dedicates two or three chapters on WHY chicks should sleep with chicks. Well if your buying this book then I would think that your already curious or interested, correct? Then the author shares some really great "secrets" on the where and how to pick up other chicks, let me take the time to write some of them down here for you, first this no brainer, "Get them intoxicated, and my all time favorite,"take them behind a dumpster and get them to smoke weed". The author then fills the book up with helpfull hints like, "go put an ad on the internet"Dang, I would have never thought of that!! In summary, you can buy this book if you want, but don't expect anything other than common sense stuff, and I use the term VERY lightly!! Thank you for your time.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Women, don't let this book poison your mind
    It's trying to turn straight women into leabians. If more women read this book they will just be influnce by it and start sleeping with women and no more men will have a woman. Don't Jen Sincero even cares about men. I hate lesbians cause they hate men. ... Read more
