"A hilarious and erotic collection of short stories, expanding the definition of 'butch' while poking sly fun at Canada, the lesbian movement, and butch-femme roles. Nice Rodriguez' storytelling is politically sharp; her heroes are fabulous - full of longing, romance, beauty, and courage. Rodriguez is a writer who commits an oral tradition to paper, who testifies to a Philippines racked by US colonialism and Marcos' greed, who is honest and clear. She is a writer who loves and translates that love to this wonderful book."- Beth Brant, author of Food Spirits and Writing as Witness

About the author (1993)

A CPA-turned-researcher-writer, Nice Rodriguez's first writings were trade and stock market reports published in Manila's top business newpapers. When labour unrest hit these papers, she tried feature writing in entertainment and lifestyle magazines. After oppositionist Benigno Aquino was shot dead she created and drew Marcial, a daily anti-Marcos comic strip that was published in Malaya (Freedom). She became a photojournalist at the outset of the People Power Revolution in the Philippines that toppled the twenty-year Marcos dictatorship. She studied painting at the University of the Philippines. Before migrating to Canada in 1988, she was assistant section editor of the Philippine Daily Globe. She now works as production artist at Toronto's Now Magazine. Her stories have appeared in Piece of My Heart and Afterglow: More Stories of Lesbian Desire.
