About the Author

Sarah Schulman is Distinguished Professor of English at the College of Staten Island, CUNY, USA. She is a novelist, playwright, screenwriter, nonfiction writer, AIDS historian, journalist, and active participant citizen.

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

Schulman, best known as an award-winning novelist (Empathy, LJ 11/1/92) and journalist for both the gay and mainstream press, has here assembled all the nonfiction articles she wrote over an 11-year period. From AIDS to Thelma and Louise, Schulman takes us on a tour of gay culture over the last decade and brings us into the mind of a young gay Jewish woman living in the United States today. In one previously unpublished essay "I Was a Lesbian Child," Schulman writes about society's hypocrisy in denying gay teachers the opportunity to be role models for their students, both gay and straight, while continuing to endorse the hiring of heterosexual males even though over 90 percent of sexual abuse cases are perpetrated by men against girls. Her views may have a limited audience, but this collection of essays, reviews, and articles would be a valuable purchase for American studies collections as well as gay and lesbian studies collections.
