    All American Girl
    Book Description:

    Winner of the 1996 Lambda Book Award for Lesbian Poetry.

    "With poignancy, honesty, and grace, Becker contends with the messy implications of her lesbian sexuality, Jewish identity, and sister's suicide. . . . Becker is acutely aware of, and devastated by, her many losses, but emerges defiant and admirably without regret or shame."

    -Boston Review
