"I've never been involved with a woman before, but Sarah has identified as a lesbian all her life. The word is as common to her as 'widow' is to me." Lillian's life at 84 is tumultuous. She is moving to Manor House senior housing to be near Sarah, abandoning the demands of her own home, which has been colonized by her children. How will she and Sarah deal with the reactions of relatives, ex's, and neighbors to their romance? How do two old women negotiate new love? Will slow-dancing and pot brownies help smooth the way? WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT LILLIAN IN LOVE I started reading Lillian in Love this afternoon. It's now 7:00pm. What a lovely day it has been. I couldn't stop reading except to pee and smoke a joint. At 86, maybe I'll fall in love, like Lillian, just one last time. --Betty Dodson, artist, author, and PhD sexologist Humor, good sex, enticing characters, familial drama -this 76-year-old reader enjoyed it all. Katz breaks new ground with verve, compassion, and sensuality. --Joan Nestle, archivist, activist, and award-winning author, including A Fragile Union In this era of insult and repression, we all need a good read with a happy ending. Settle on the sofa and pick up Lillian in Love now. This is less a coming-out story than a letting-go of the obstacles to the full expression of our being. --Verandah Porche, poet and performer, whose books include Sudden Eden, Glancing Off, and The Body's Symmetry Timely and important, this is a novel not to be missed. A great read. --Elizabeth Woodcraft, author of Beyond the Beehive and A Sense of Occasion If you worry that sex has an expiration date, you'll be reassured and inspired by Lillian in Love. Katz doesn't sugarcoat the hard realities of the characters' present and past. Fortunately, she also doesn't skip the good parts! --Joan Price, senior sex advocate and author of The Ultimate Guide to Sex After 50: How to Maintain - or Regain! - a Spicy, Satisfying Sex Life It's a really delightful read, and not just for those of us pushing old age. Sue Katz is a terrific writer and here she's at the top of her game. --Richard Schweid, journalist and author, most recently of Invisible Nation: Homeless Families in America

NOW A NATIONAL INDIE BESTSELLER “Transporting...witty, poignant and sparkling.” —People (People Picks Book of the Week) “Prescient and quick....A perfect fusing of subject and writer, idea and ideal.” —Chicago Tribune “Extraordinary...hilarious...Elegantly written, Rooney creates a glorious paean to a distant literary life and time—and an unabashed celebration of human connections that bridge past and future. —Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed) "Rooney's delectably theatrical fictionalization is laced with strands of tart poetry and emulates the dark sparkle of Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Truman Capote. Effervescent with verve, wit, and heart, Rooney’s nimble novel celebrates insouciance, creativity, chance, and valor." —Booklist (starred review) “In my reckless and undiscouraged youth,” Lillian Boxfish writes, “I worked in a walnut-paneled office thirteen floors above West Thirty-Fifth Street...” She took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy for R.H. Macy’s to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. It was a job that, she says, “in some ways saved my life, and in other ways ruined it.” Now it’s the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party. It’s chilly enough out for her mink coat and Manhattan is grittier now—her son keeps warning her about a subway vigilante on the prowl—but the quick-tongued poetess has never been one to scare easily. On a walk that takes her over 10 miles around the city, she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed—and has not. A love letter to city life in all its guts and grandeur, Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney paints a portrait of a remarkable woman across the canvas of a changing America: from the Jazz Age to the onset of the AIDS epidemic; the Great Depression to the birth of hip-hop. Lillian figures she might as well take her time. For now, after all, the night is still young.

With a theatrical career spanning nearly 100 years, Gish saw motion pictures evolve from flickers to blockbusters. Usually playing someone needing to be rescued or protected, her trademark delicacy and vulnerability belied a strong and complex woman whose fatherless childhood taught her frugality, love for her mother and her sister, Dorothy, and a distrust of men. The author, who was her friend, chronicles the hardships, heartaches, and fierce determination that shaped her all her days. With rare photographs and intimate recollections of Lillian, Dorothy, and many other important figures.

Publisher University of Chicago Press

Love Between Women examines female homoeroticism and the role of women in the ancient Roman world. Employing an unparalleled range of cultural sources, Brooten finds evidence of marriages between women and establishes that condemnations of female homoerotic practices were based on widespread awareness of love between women. "An extraordinary accomplishment. . . . A definitive source for all future discussion of homoeroticism and the Bible."—Mary Rose D'Angelo, Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review "[Brooten's] convincing analysis . . . not only profoundly reshapes our understanding of the past, but it should also shape the way in which that past, particularly the early Christian texts with their immense normative weight, will be used for the future."—Anne L. Clark, Journal of Lesbian Studies "Love Between Women gives contemporary debates on sexuality a carefully delineated past. It boldly insists upon a different future, one informed by history but not tyrannized by it."—Susan Ackerman, Lambda Book Report "Fascinating, provocative and lucid. . . . Brooten has made a fundamental contribution to women's and gender studies, gay and lesbian studies, and classics."—Elizabeth A. Castelli, Women's Review of Books Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Best Lesbian Studies Book, 1997

Publisher Little, Brown

One of the most anticipated books of 2017--Entertainment Weekly and Bustle A searing, deeply moving memoir about family, love, loss, and forgiveness from the critically acclaimed, bestselling National Book Award-winning author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Family relationships are never simple. But Sherman Alexie's bond with his mother Lillian was more complex than most. She plunged her family into chaos with a drinking habit, but shed her addiction when it was on the brink of costing her everything. She survived a violent past, but created an elaborate facade to hide the truth. She selflessly cared for strangers, but was often incapable of showering her children with the affection that they so desperately craved. She wanted a better life for her son, but it was only by leaving her behind that he could hope to achieve it. It's these contradictions that made Lillian Alexie a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated, and very human woman. When she passed away, the incongruities that defined his mother shook Sherman and his remembrance of her. Grappling with the haunting ghosts of the past in the wake of loss, he responded the only way he knew how: he wrote. The result is a stunning memoir filled with raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine, much less survive. An unflinching and unforgettable remembrance, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME is a powerful, deeply felt account of a complicated relationship.

"I absolutely loved Lillian on Life." —Kate Atkinson "I found it full of life and full of wisdom.” —Erica Jong Smart, poignant, funny, and totally original, Lillian on Life is as fresh and surprising as fiction gets. This is the story of Lillian, a single woman reflecting on her choices and imagining her future.

Throughout her life, walking the unpaved road between traditional and modern choices for women, Lillian grapples with parental disappointment and societal expectations, wins and loses in love, and develops her own brand of wisdom. Lillian on Life lifts the skin off the beautiful, stylish product of an era to reveal the confused, hot-blooded woman underneath. From the Hardcover edition.

At least the first few times. Even though Molly Grant has only a handful of relationships behind her, she’s already been through more divorces than she can count. At the premier Manhattan law firm where she’s a matrimonial attorney, the hours are long, the bosses tyrannical, and the bonuses stratospheric. Her clients are rich, famous, and used to getting their way. Molly’s job—and primary concern in life—is to work as hard as possible to make sure they do. Until she meets the client who changes everything…. Fern Walker is the desperate former wife of a ruthless media mogul. Her powerful ex is slowly pushing her out of her young children’s lives, and she fears losing them forever. Molly—haunted by an incident from her own past—finds herself unable to walk away from Fern and sets out to help her. She just needs to do it without her bosses finding out. Now, as complications both professional and personal stack up, Molly can only hope that her own wits, heart, and instincts are enough—both in and out of court.
