Women-loving poems by poet Judy Grahn (1940 - ), including She Who and The Common Women series. Also Edward the Dyke, a short story based on real experiences, in which a woman confused and ambivalent about lesbianism is confronted by her head-shrinker and his battery of pseudo-therapeutic analyses and methods. Judy is a radical lesbian, but women (and quite a few men) have found her work exciting. The dynamic quality of her writing and its subjects is even more apparent in readings such as this (where KPFA's studio audience tried to be quiet, but finally exploded). Sensitive language.
