In a framework that is Jewish, lesbian, feminist and class-conscious, Klepfisz speaks out against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, anti-Semitism and homophobia, compulsory motherhood, and the commercialization of the Holocaust, and for the strengthening and preservation of secular Yiddish culture in the US and the joy of doing creative work. Some of the essays have been previously published. Published by The Eighth Mountain Press, 624 Southeast 29th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214-3026.
