Lynne Cheney, wife of the United States Vice-president, halts the reissue of her lesbian romance novel, "Sisters," originally published in 1981. No mention of this particular book can be found in Lynne Cheney's biography on the White House Web site.
Liz Perl, executive director of publicity at New American Library, says:
"We felt interest was growing because it was an election year and we decided it could be a timely book."
A sample quote from the book:
"Let us go away together, away from the anger and imperatives of men. There will be only the two of us, and we shall linger through long afternoons of sweet retirement. In the evenings I shall read to you while you work your cross-stitch in the firelight. And then we shall go to bed, our bed, my dearest girl."
