The title was so obvious at first I smiled, but then I stopped and thought about what a strong political act it is to state simply and without apology, "I Am A Lesbian." No "twilight hunger" or "perverse passions," just an honest and powerful statement of fact - particularly in 1958 when this was published.
According to Astrodyke, the back cover reads: "Stories relating to lesbianism are very numerous today. This is surely proof that people are interested in the subject and its treatment. Lesbians are a part of our society and they will very likely remain so. In this book Lora Sela does not write that its characters have *tendencies*; instead they are *real* lesbians whose hearts are as warm and deserving of understanding as any other segment of our human life."
