Women In The Shadows
Regular price $19.50
Designated the "Queen of Lesbian Pulp" for her landmark novels beginning in 1957, Ann Bannon’s work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Following the release of Cleis Press’s new editions of Beebo Brinker and Odd Girl Out, Women in the Shadows picks up with Beebo’s relationship with Laura waning, as both women become caught in the cultural tumult (gay bar raids, heavy drinking, gay rights advocacy) that anticipates by ten years the Stonewall Rebellion of 1969. New introduction explains the book’s evolution, including the role Bannon’s divorce played in shaping the lesbian protagonist’s outrage.
In this instalment of this series, Laura and Beebo continue their tumultuous relationship while their best friend, gay hero Jack, watches cynically from the sidelines. Can Laura and Beebo ever find happiness with each other? Adventures and drama follow as they each go on their individual journeys to fight their personal demons.
By Ann Bannon, Published by Cleis Press, 2002. 200 pages.
