Folly is a working-class, lesbian novel about black and white women who go on strike in a North Carolina factory town—and two of them fall in love. Tillie Olsen said that this novel "speaks with an authenticity, a force, a caring that deepens and enlarges us." Jewelle Gomez noted that this is a novel about "work and passion," in which "women bond together for strength, for a better life, and for love."

Review:

"Folly speaks with an authenticity, a force, a caring that deepens and enlarges us."
Tillie Olsen, author of Tell Me A Riddle

"What a delight it is to have Folly back in print! Maureen Brady is one of our most original voices. Folly is riveting and inspirational, a heartwarming testimonial to what a few good women can do to make the world less racist, homophobic, and oppressive to women workers. The only true 'folly' is that this fine novel has been unavailable for so long. The new afterword by Bonnie Zimmerman is an excellent addition, which succinctly places the work in both a historical and literary context."
Karla Jay, co-editor of Lesbian Text and Contexts: Radical Revisions

"In this novel about work and passion Maureen Brady shows us the pride that has helped women survive a society which devalues both women and labor. Economic circumstance can't douse the spark that lights each of her characters' lives. The women bond together for strength, for a better life and for love."
Jewelle Gomez, author of The Gilda Stories
