9781573441872: Spring Fire (Lesbian Pulp Fiction)

Her silky black hair. Her low-cut gown. Her sparkling sorority pin. It's autumn rush in the Tri Epsilon house, and the new pledge, Susan Mitchell―"Mitch" to her friends―trembles as the fastest girl on campus, the lovely Leda Taylor, crosses the room toward her for a dance. Will Leda corrupt Mitch? Or will the strong and silent Mitch draw the queen of Tri Ep into the forbidden world of Lesbian Love? Spring Fire was the first lesbian paperback novel and sold an amazing 1.5 million copies when it first appeared in 1952. It launched an entire genre of lesbian novels, as well as the writing career of Vin Packer, one of the pseudonyms of prolific author Marijane Meaker, whose acclaimed memoir, Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950s, told the story of her own forbidden love. Now available after forty years out of print, Spring Fire is both a vital part of lesbian history and a steamy page-turner.

About the Author:

Vin Packer is a pseudonym of Marijane Meaker, author of the highly acclaimed memoir Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950s. Writing under the name of M.E. Kerr, she is also the author of popular young adult novels.

Review:

"Packer is an important figure not merely as one of the few women to make her way in the boys' club of the '50s paperback writers, but also as one of the best and most original American novelists of that era."
