A Movement of Eros: 25 Years of Lesbian Erotica by Heather Findlay 

1996, paperback

One of the most scintillating overviews of lesbian erotic writing ever published. Dyke firebrand Heather Findlay has assembled a roster of stellar talents, each represented by their best, most provocative work. Tracing the course of the genre from its pre-Stonewall roots to its current renaissance, Findlay examines such diverse writers as Jewelle Gomez, Chrystos, Pat Califa and Linda Smukler, always placing them within the context of lesbian community and politics. A singularly diverse and vibrant collection, A Movement of Eros examines the traditions and innovations of lesbian sexual writing, claiming a special place for the erotic in the continuing advance toward empowerment and liberation.
