Sermons for a Hot Kitchen by Carolyn Gage 2018 Self-Published Lulu/Amazon 251 pp. This is a collection of sixteen sermons” delivered by the playwright Carolyn Gage. They are essays on topics ranging from prostitution to Stockholm Syndrome to dying well. These are firmly held opinions from a lesbian activist playwright to be delivered to a lesbian audience. Gage is well-read, well-informed and articulate. We don’t personally agree on every topic, but her essays are provocative and give rise to deep thought. Many women will recall her Tent Revival performances at the Michigan Women’s Festival. For those who mourn the loss of the land there, this is a must have book.
