    Ranging in age from six to 40, 38 sons and daughters of lesbians offer brief essays that could be valuable to like offspring, as well as to relatives and friends trying to understand the problems such children face. Homophobia, visited upon the children as well as their mothers, is the most commonly cited concern; some younger contributors feel isolated from their peers, and a couple of boys endure rejection from radical lesbian acquaintances.

But what started out as a quick way to earn a living became a curious preoccupation with all things clean...and messy. Other People's Dirt is a collection of Rafkin's observation and commentary about her and her clients' dilemmas with dirt.
