Details

Currently in its 4th printing, this LAMBDA-award winning anthology crosses all boundaries of taste and style, to bring together stories by writers as diverse as Sapphire, Joan Larkin, Linda Yablonsky, Honor Moore, Carmelita Tropicana, Dodie Bellamy, and Laurie Weeks. The book's thirty-nine contributors cover virtually the entire range that lesbians do: having a baby, buying heroin, watching a parent die, walking a dog. But unlike other lesbian anthologies that either exclude or fetishize sexuality, sex in The New Fuck You erupts as anarchically as it does in life, rejecting all "thematic consistency" and drawing from the new capitals of de-centered America, from DC riot grrls to Sin City, Louisiana, to white-girl flashbacks into a black reformatory in Ohio. More brawl than mall, this compilation asserts a new form of female underground culture that is as formless, interesting and as surprising as lesbian life today.
