There are certain books classified as classics that are important in lesfic. Forrest's name comes up a lot because she was writing lesfic before many others. At least lesbian books that weren't considered pulp, that had horrible endings. This is a classic lesbian romance, that if you changed a fe...

“Nothing interesting can possibly happen in a cabin full of women.” So ends the first chapter of Curious Wine, Katherine Forrest’s classic novel of the early 80’s in which 6 women bring their personal issues to a beautiful Tahoe cabin for a weeks skiing in an era when encounter groups were in, pa...

I liked this book because it will tell you exactly why women would choose to become lesbians and why that is so much better than the alternative! Seriously though, it may seem cheesy today, but what do you expect from lesbian fiction written in the early 80's? That's part of the fun, just the des...

I thought this book was an absolutely beautiful love story about two people that were meant to be together. I loved the constant references to Emily Dickenson. I thought it was an original story line and way ahead of it's time. I will definately be reading more books by Katherine V. Forrest in th...

I read Curious Wine 13 years ago and it was my first time ever reading a lesbian romance. 13 years later I still read it all the time and find myself always anticipating the first time Lane and Diana come together. Some of the descriptions may be dated for younger people but this story is truly...

I didn't even then think the book was realistic in any way. The "encounter" sessions, where you say horrible things to people you don'...

i'm really struggling between giving it a 3 or 4 stars. if the book had only been about diana and lane, i'd have given it 5 stars. their story was perfect. as individual characters, they were both compelling, smart and beautiful and as a couple it was just a pure firework.
but then the author adde...

This was on a list of classic lesbian romance novels so I read it. Written in 1983 and set in 1978, it was very dated. Like watching Dessert Hearts now, I can understand that it was maybe groundbreaking in its day but it just doesn't hold up well. The romance happened fast which I found hard to b...

Certainly not great literature, but a nice little, predictable, romance about two women. How I wish there was some truely well written, good literature with interesting lesbian characters out there. Except for Lisa Alther's novels, there really isn't..

This was a very fast read. I started it on a Wednesday and finished it on Thursday, less than 24 hours later.
This was written in the early '80's and set in 1978. It is the story of a woman in her thirties who, after the breakup of a relationship with a man, suddenly finds herself drawn to anothe...
