These essays, many of which appeared in the author's books Lesbian Nation and Gullibles Travels, break with convention and tackle social issues still relevant today: coming out and outing public icons; gay marriage and monogamy; solidarity and betrayal between gay men and lesbians, and between straight feminists and lesbians; the men's movement; and misogyny.

This facsimile edition is a complete reproduction of the most reliable of the medieval manuscripts of The Canterbury Tales-the Hengwrt Manuscript (or Peniarth 392 D), now in the National Library of Wales, in Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire. Because it is to serve as the basic text of the Tales for the projected multivolume Variorum Edition of Chaucer's complete works, much deliberation was given to the choice of the Hengwrt Manuscript. Scribed in the late fourteenth or early fifteenth century, it is one of the earliest extant manuscripts of the Tales.
