Lambda Book Report

Since the 25th Anniversary of Stonewall there has been a massive literary trend toward the falsification, in the name of harmony and inclusiveness, of the politically incorrect reality of our shared lesbian and gay past In her autobiography centering on a few years around Stonewall, focused upon the student movement, the rise and (ultimate turning point) of the women's movement and the founding of the earliest gay political groups, Karla Jay passes the reality test with flying colors For many readers, Jay's book will attain its fullest fruition as narrative and as history in these sections on the early gay movement.
