I read this a couple of years ago at a time I was feeling very low and it made me laugh all the way through, though it has an underlying serious message about the importance of self esteem and self acceptance that's relevant to all women not just lesbians. Read it again recently and got more laughs and food for thought out of it. One of the most enjoyable books about being a lesbian and the trials and pleasures of it I've ever read. Parts of it are very thought provoking, a lot of it is irreverent and all of it is fun. Whether just coming out, in the closet or been out for years this book is well worth reading.
