Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A REISSUE OF THIS GROUNDBREAKING AND BESTSELLING LESBIAN FICTION CLASSIC The reissue of Katherine V. Forrest's timeless story of all-out war between a man and a woman for the body and soul of the woman they both desire. In the 1980s, the politics of feminism were just beginning to gain mainstream awareness. In this fast-paced novel, first published in 1986, Lambda Award winner Katherine V. Forrest nurtured a new genre of fiction: the lesbian emergence novel. In AN EMERGENCE OF GREEN, one of the best-selling lesbian novels of all time, an unplanned encounter between trophy wife Carolyn Blake and her new neighbour - tall, athletic artist Val Hunter - leads to a close friendship and deepening emotions that young Carolyn has never known. Carolyn begins to question her attitudes, her life, her marriage, and her sexuality. The two women's intense physical encounters force Carolyn at last to acknowledge her true desires and to rethink her values and her cloistered life. Can Carolyn really give up comfort for unfamiliar territory, stability for fulfilment?

Book Description: Harrington Park Press, 2005. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In the 1980s, the politics of feminism were just beginning to gain mainstream awareness. In this fast-paced novel, first published in 1986, Lambda Award winner Katherine V. Forrest (author of the Kate Delafield Mystery Series and the acclaimed novel Curious Wine) opened new doors for thousands of women as she nurtured a new genre of fiction: the lesbian emergence novel. In An Emergence of Green, one of the best-selling lesbian novels of all time, an unplanned encounter between trophy wife Carolyn Blake and her new neighbor-tall, athletic artist Val Hunter-leads to a close friendship and deepening emotions that young Carolyn has never known. Suddenly, Carolyn's carefully manicured domestic life seems unfulfilling and much less colorful. And her husband's love for her seems contrived and condescending, as if it's not the real Carolyn he loves at all. Like so many American businessmen in the 1980s, Paul Blake thinks a wife should be docile, placid, and dedicated to pleasing her husband and impressing his friends. His tenderness turns to rage, his caresses to blows. Yet An Emergence of Green is nothing if not hopeful. This is Carolyn's story-a story of emerging independence, expanding self-awareness, and awakening sexuality. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_156023542X
