Plot
Home is a loaded word, especially so for lesbians who at times are viewed as home wreckers rather than homemakers. For many, home evokes an idyllic tableau, a family nestled safely behind the white picket fence. In Chasing the American Dyke Dream: Homestretch, 23 lesbian writers celebrate their personal search for home. As lesbians, what do we call home? Is it that sense of safety and familiarity that makes us feel "centered, happy, sexy, alive"? Or the physical structures we rent, build, buy, move into and out of, alone or with lovers, cats, children, dogs? Chasing the American Dyke Dream: Homestretch offers rich, poignant visions of home, both homes of origin and homes we create to replace the "deep closets" many of us escaped in order to find our places in the world. Features Robin Becker, Valerie Miner, Louise Rafkin, Linda Smukler, tatiana de la tierra, Terry Wolverton, Elaine Beale
