Reviews

“Every lesbian looking for a partner would love to know the secret of successful relationships. In her early book The Mirror Dance, Susan Krieger described themes of belonging and ambivalence in a lesbian community; now she turns that mirror inward for a candid reflection on her own relationship of forty years, from an uncertain beginning to an important place of refuge. With beautiful imagery and an engaging writing style, Krieger describes the highs and lows of two women with very different personalities learning to live together.” —Esther Rothblum, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Lesbian Studies

“I could not stop reading this riveting account of traveling through the world in a lesbian relationship. What an honest, engaging, and stunningly written story about the beauty and tensions of being together and separate. The author invites us into her heart, emotions, and head as she seeks to reflexively understand the nuances of lesbian intimacy. This is a book for all those seeking to understand relationships more deeply and those who appreciate getting lost in an extraordinary autoethnography.” —Carolyn Ellis, Distinguished University Professor Emerita of Communication and Sociology at the University of South Florida, and author of Final Negotiations: A Story of Love, Loss, and Chronic Illness (Temple)

“Intimate and unvarnished, Are You Two Sisters? documents the many accommodations necessary in a long-term lesbian relationship. Susan Krieger shares her remembrances of journeys with Hannah, and the rhythm of their life together is underscored by Krieger’s increasing loss of sight, enlarging the parameters of their partnership.”—Marcia M. Gallo, Professor Emerita at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and author of Different Daughters: A History of the Daughters of Bilitis and the Rise of the Lesbian Rights Movement

"The book is both intimate and deeply personal, while also a sociological study of life as a lesbian in the United States through a period of dynamic political and social change…. Are You Two Sisters? is a good roadmap full of descriptive material about how their relationship evolved and what obstacles were overcome…. A key strength of the book is Krieger’s openness in sharing her own lesbian identity journey."—Affilia
