Helen Eisenbach on "Lesbianism Made Easy"
"This book saved my life!"—Customer on Amazon.com
Helen Eisenbach is a novelist (Loonglow), editor,
playwright, and contributor to New York Magazine and
"She has written a book that is a welcome relief from the
plethora of self-help books that take themselves ever-
so-seriously. This irreverent look at lesbianism covers
such topics as how to know you're a lesbian, finding the
woman of your dreams, breaking up, and, yes, choosing
a pet" (Library Journal).
And another customer on Amazon.com wrote: "It is best
to chose wisely when deciding where to read this book. I
started in a restaurant, with starched linen tableclothes. I
laughed so much that I spat tomato and basil soup over
a good proportion of it.
"Ms Eisenbach manages to be funny whilst also giving
good advice on such difficult subjects as: When to phone
a woman after you have had sex with her. Her account of
naming a lesbian pet is wonderful but may cause you to
have fits of the giggles next time you hear a friend call
"She advised aspirant lesbians to 'lighten up' This is just
the book to do it!"
Copies of the book will be given away as door prizes.
