Synopsis

Kate Millet's memoir begins with her return to Minnesota to take care of her intelligent but controlling mother who is dying. This is the catalyst for a meditation on her upbringing in middle America and her subsequent outcast status as a political activist, artist, and lesbian. Reflecting on her life of political engagement, beginning with the sexual politics of the feminist movement, proceeding to the struggle for gay liberation, and culminating with her campaign for housing rights on the Lower East Side, she confronts the fears of losing her mother and a world which she long ago rejected but which still defines her.
