My Jewish Face & Other Stories by Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz
1990, Paperback

My Jewish Face & Other Stories chronicles the coming of age and coming out of a daughter of the Jewish left. Wandering from Brooklyn to Harlem and Berkeley in the sixties, from the intense feminist politics of the seventies to isolation and to the regathering of activism in the eighties, Kaye/Kantrowitz's women struggle for lesbian community, for proud Jewish identity and always for justice steeped in compassion. As humanly warm and funny as they are serious, these stories reach with great hope and energy across generations and across cultures. 

"Stories chronicling the coming of age and coming out of a daughter of the Jewish left. I like this book a lot. It's full of history, herstories and plain stories - and in beautiful combination and variety." - Grace Paley
