About this title


2016 Reprint of 1960 Edition.  Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The classic 1950s love story from the Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction, and author of “Odd Girl Out,” “I Am a Woman,” “Women in the Shadows,” ‘Journey to a Woman” and “Beebo Brinker.” Would she throw away her entire life on the one wild chance that she might find the lost woman out of her past? Following on from classic novels this novel finds Laura in love in the lesbian bohemia of Greenwich Village.  Praise for Ann Bannon: "Bannon's books grab you and don't let go" --Village Voice."When I was young, Bannon's books let me imagine myself into her New York City neighborhoods of short-haired, dark-eyed butch women and stubborn, tight-lipped secretaries with hearts ready to be broken. Her books come close to the kind of books that had made me feel fatalistic and damned in my youth, but somehow she just managed to sustain a sense of hope. And of course, there was her romantic portrait of the kind of butch woman I idealized. I would have dated Beebo, no question" --Dorothy Allison.   "Called trash by the literary world and pornography by the commercial world, Ann Bannon's books were hidden away on drugstore pulp racks. To pick out the book, carry it to the counter and face the other shoppers and the cashier was tantamount to coming out. But all across the country, lesbians were doing it"-- Joan Nestle.  "Little did Bannon know that her stories would become legends, inspiring countless fledgling dykes to flock to the Village, dog-eared copies of her books in hand, to find their own Beebos and Lauras and others who shared the love they dared not name"-- San Francisco Bay Guardian. "Ann Bannon is a pioneer of dyke drama" On Our Backs "Shameless tales of wanton dyke lust are finally unveiled!"-- Out magazine
