Lambda Book Report
Carol Rosenfeld - June, 2001: When an author creates appealing characters, readers respond with the immortal words of Oliver Twist, "Please, sir, I want some more." Surly literati already in the throes of birthing their next masterpiece might sneer, "Let them eat cake," but Karin Kallmaker smiles and gives her fans not only cake but frosting too. Smooth frosting, flavored with wit plus a pinch or two of wisdom, and evenly spread—no thin spots. Kallmaker, "the undisputed Mistress of Lesbian Romance," a title this reviewer will not challenge, rewards the faithful... I started with "And Now a Word...or Two," and ate the whole thing, buttercream rose and all, savoring every bite.
