Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;andlt;bigandgt;At last, a relationship book for lesbians that tells it like it is . . .andlt;/bigandgt;andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The journey from sexual curiosity to finally coming out can be confusing without proper guidance and empowering role models. In andlt;iandgt;Same Sex in the Cityandlt;/iandgt;, Lauren Levin and Lauren Blitzer provide women — gay, straight, and bi-curious alike — with firsthand insight into the advantages and challenges of being a lesbian. In prose that is at once honest and uplifting, the Laurens relate their own experiences and those of the women they interview, as well as offer serious advice, titillating anecdotes, and a positive attitude for girls who know they're gay — and for those who are wondering about their sexuality but are not yet sure whether their Prince Charming is really a Cinderella. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Part confessional, part informational, andlt;iandgt;Same Sex in the Cityandlt;/iandgt; covers the gamut of lesbian life — from dating to heartbreak, and from hooking up with straight chicks to raising a family. It's the book that millions of women have been searching for — a relationship guide that will help every woman come to terms with and celebrate her sexuality, whatever it may be.

Review:

"Quick quiz: Do you call yourself a chick? Turned on by girl-on-girl action ? Know the difference between Absolut and Ketel One? If you answered yes to two out of three questions, you'll get a thrill from this book. Levin and Blitzer, two twenty-something lesbians, offer this as a guide for the newly out and the merely curious. The outline has pop, with topics like the problem of labels, the U-Haul syndrome, is-she-or-isn't-she experimentation (tricky territory that's handled well), and so on. Chapters start with tips and observations and end with a takeaway thought, framing stories from the authors and those they've interviewed. Most of the interviewees are much like the authors: young, well-heeled, hard-partying femmes, long on enthusiasm but short on experience, full of up-to-the minute slang but better at describing their drinks than their lovers. Lesbians with different lifestyles don't get much play, or even respect. Advice ranges from inarguable ('it is just as important to mesh well ... outside the sheets as it is between them') to potentially dangerous (confiding in 'an anonymous online pal'). Though they've left a lot of queer territory unexplored, Levin and Blitzer's urban trailblazing is admirable, and their book deserves a large (if narrow) audience."
