Lesbian Literature: In Search of Pure Lust

Lesbian Literature: In Search of Pure Lust

“In Search of Pure Lust is more than a meditation on queer identity. It’s an incredible coming-of-age memoir that claims a woman’s right to be herself, wherever and whenever she may be. Weil’s writing is smooth, polished, and lovely. Pure Lust explores a wide range of emotions and experiences, from laugh-out-loud moments to love scenes that take your breath away. […]

Lesbian Fiction: Life in Post World War II NYC

Oh jeepers! I was wearing a red dress. I’d forgotten that everything in Sardi’s is red or maroon. The walls, the banquettes, the seats, the menus, the awning outside. As I worried about how to get out of my red dress without being noticed, Juliana came through the door, stepping feather-light on Sardi’s maroon carpet. […]

Party at the Palais Royal It was finally late enough to get on my Vespa and drive over to the Palais Royal. Emma’s parents lived on the fifth floor in Rue de Beaujolais. Emma herself had her own “atelier” in the 14th arrondissement, although she had nothing to do with art. Opening the massive, polished […]

Lesbian Book Trailer: Kiss Me Again Paris

Just like everyone, I love movie trailers, those that entice and don’t give away the whole story at a glance. That book trailers can do something similar, is a fairly new idea, but more authors are playing with the new medium. We live in the audiovisual age! My Paris memoir has 130 vintage photographs, which […]

I Give Up – It’s Just Not Personal

I Give Up – It’s Just Not Personal

Feelings come easily for me; I get mired in them. Especially hurt feelings. Loss laced with Fear. Hard stuff. I am wired to feel whether I want to or not. I have not mastered the skill of dissociation. Working consciousness into my feelings keep them from turning into quicksand. Wrestling with where to go with […]

Silence is Not a Virtue

Silence is Not a Virtue

Silence is NOT a virtue. I don’t know much about life but I know a lot about love. I don’t know how to split atoms, I don’t split body from mind, but I’ve split many infinitives and I split my gut laughing. O hell, I’ve been splitting fine hairs with tradition for years. I don’t […]
