Top Ten Essay Collections by Lesbians
a book list by Julie R. Enszer, Poet, Scholar, and Blogger
shelved under Gay & Lesbian
Essays are an important literary tool to talk about our lives and reflect on what is happening in the world. One of the things we are missing right now in the lesbian community are journals and magazines that publish longer essays about our lives and our analysis of what is happening in our communities. We need that dialogue, written and recorded, to share with one another and build greater understandings between and among us. Creating this list was more difficult than the list of contemporary lesbian poetry. The essay is an underutilized tool. Moreover, many of these books were published more than a decade ago. Where are the younger lesbian essayists? We need their words.
