Read any good books about same-sex haikus and cats lately? Oakland-based sex and relationship columnist Anna Pulley and her illustrator partner Kelsey Beyer discuss The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (with Cats!), their new collection of nearly 500 examples of the Japanese form of poetry that pokes fun of the mysteries of lesbian sex and dating, as well as stereotypes. Pulley organizes her humorous haiku like “Lesbianism: So much more than folk music and hemp shorteralls” into chapters with such titles as “How to Pick Up a Lesbian” and “U-Hauling,” which are paired with Beyer’s watercolors of “cats in various states of lesbian anxiety.”
