Audible Editor Reviews

Known for her personal philosophy on "humor and healing", Karen Williams delivers wit and wisdom to lesbian sisters with her stand-up comedy manifesto Human Beings, at once self-empowering and side-splitting. Nevertheless, this is no goody two-shoes self-help hokum: From sex to society, Williams’s no-holds-barred dyke declarations pack a potent punch. Williams holds the hands of "dyklings and dykettes", as she describes a world in which our sexual identities are increasingly nuanced and specific, at once liberating and confining us. Through her clinical dissection of gender and identity, Williams asks whether we can’t all be "human beings", first and foremost.
