Transcript from the Closet Jo ttie Courts Still, anyone who is interested in the politics of lesbianism, as we all should be, might prosper from a reading of the book, if only to understand the experiences which one of us has lived through in trying to live as a gay activist. One must also remember that while we are writing book reviews, Simpson is writing books. She writes with courage and she deserves to be read. - Linda Lovell From the Closet to the Courts, Ruth Simpson. Penguin Books. 1977. 180 pp. $2.25 In her book, From the Closet to the Courts, Ruth Simpson has attempted to explain "what it means to be a lesbian today" and to describe the persecution of homosexual women. This is a near impossible task, since there are as many different explanations for "what it means to be a lesbian" as there are lesbians, and as many different types of persecution. And that's the problem. Simpson falls into a too personal, too specific account of her own political life, good to utilize as example, but not as the substance for a book which presumes to analyze the status of all lesbians. She devotes almost the whole of the chapter on "Lesbians and Psychiatry" to a personal debate with the eminent Dr. Charles Socarides, homophobe extraordinaire. The good doctor is worthy of perhaps a good and harsh 10 words, but certainly not of a long and, alas, dull 20 pages. Her chapter on "Lesbians and the Courts of Justice" tells us all about the cases of Joseph Acanfora and Jack Baker, but devotes only three sketchy paragraphs to the plight of lesbian mothers. Simpson seems unable to make the generalizations which we need in order to grasp some overall view. She gives us the personal in the hope that we can somehow grasp and understand the political. For me, it just didn't work. A woman in this age is considered learned enough if she can distinguish her husband's bed from that of another. --Hannah Wool leg in 1675 NEW BOOKS <Thc QJE.SBIANS CHOME JOURNAL Stones from ^The ^Ladder Barbara Crier and Coletta Reid, cds. 326 pp., jhij)cr, drawings $5.75 Sex Variant Women in Literature by Jcannette Foster 420 pp., paper $8.00 Sapphic Songs Seventeen to Seventy by Elsa Gidlow A collection of lesbian love poems. 80 />/>,, paper, photos $3.50 All Our Lives A Women's Songbook Joyce Cheney, Marcia Deihl, & Deborah Silvcrstein, eds. 200 pp. paper, photos $6.50 THE LAVENDER HERRING I «-«»bian f-.%*ays from The Ladder Barbara Crier and Coletta Reid, eels.
