"I highly recommend this anthology from a wonderfully diverse group of Lesbian writers. In her own way, each writer touches uniquely on the issues and experiences of being female and Lesbian in this country.
This book is an act of resistance, defiantly speaking of their (and many of our) realities as females and as Lesbians in a world increasingly hostile to our existence and where many wish to silence our unique, vibrant and powerful voices."
- Debra V.
"A living, breathing love song to the poet’s heritage and the many ways it shaped the fierce and independent woman that she has become today."
-Maria Mazziotti Gillan, American Book Award winner for All That Lies Between Us
"As a lesbian Italian American I yearn to find myself in today's whitebread Anglo-centric culture. "Hey Paesan!" is an anthology of essays from L/G Italian Americans that serves as that relfecting pool. By deconstructing identities through poems and memoirs, the authors describe what it's like being a queer paesan! Molto bene!"
