This collection portrays her life and that of a concerned lesbian community which was deeply affected by her presence. 
Edited by Gwendolyn L. Shervington

The life and work of Michiyo is passionate, violent and angry. Full of pain, grief and trauma, with moments of tenderness. They slice into my gut like a sharp blade straight to my viscera. She is indeed a woman of depth and tragedy. Refusing to be rendered silent and invisible, she moved from despair to determination. Ever vocal, even in death, Michiyo urges that we “consider the price of our silence.” I urge you to read her words, the legacy she left behind.  – Kitty Tsui, author of Breathless
