Read full description of the books Callaloo & Other Lesbian Love Tales:This is one of my favorite lesbian anthologies for a reason: it covers the modern lesbian experience from all walks of life. There's the story of a couple that has been together for over twenty-something years, sitting on a porch anticipating dinner; First girl-crushes; and the pain of losing family members who refuse to accept a Carribean-American woman for who she is. Luckilly for her, her girlfriend eases her pain for home with Calloloo. I recommend this book to anyone who truelly appreciates the variety of lives we lead as African American lesbians.
