Love it or hate it (and there doesn't seem to be any in-between!), Nicole Conn's Claire of the Moon is without question one of the most influential lesbian films ever made. Here is the novel on which it was based. The story of brash, beautiful Claire, whose heterosexuality is pushed into question by a lesbian academic, is smart, sexy, challenging and surprising.

In addition to writing the novel, Nicole Conn also wrote and directed the film version of Claire of the Moon. She is also the author of Passion's Shadows, Angel's Wings, The Wedding Dress and She Walks in Beauty. She lives in Los Angeles with her partner and their daughter.

From Library Journal:

During a month-long writers' retreat, Claire and Noel trade sarcastic put - downs. The two women share a cabin, but each acts as if she were there alone. Their habits and writing styles clash--not that either of them does much writing--and provoke frayed nerves. But their irritability masks curiosity, and when Claire finally seduces uptight psychologist Noel, the bickering stops and hurt feelings are miraculously healed. Although it has some appeal as pure escape, this novel is hampered by inane, two-dimensional characters and a weak story line no amount of verbal boxing can disguise. The book contains 11 photo stills from a movie of the same name (not seen) written and directed by Conn. Not a necessary purchase.
