Admission Accomplished : The Lesbian Nation Years, 1970-75 (High Risk Books)用戶評語 - Book Verdict
This collection of Johnston writings reminds us how far American society has come with respect to gender and sexuality and how far it has to go. The 56 essays in this book reintroduce us to an original thinker who shares her mixed bag of goodies--a melange of literary criticism; articulate descriptions of coming out, gay marriage, misogyny, philogyny, and parenting; and the playful use of language. She is forthright about her language, making no apologies for its fire or its irreverence. As she states in her introduction, she became a "belated mother" to her two children in 1980, after realizing that families were being re-created, the nuclear family as we have known it was not the only alternative, and she was not a failure as a mother and as a woman. Readers will note how far-reaching Johnston's perspective was; her "radical" espousals have become part and parcel of today's rhetoric and laid the groundwork for other writers coming out in a mass-media context. Recommended for all academic libraries and especially those with large lesbian/gay and feminist collections.--Laura J. Bender, Univ. of Arizona
