Product description

Designated the 'Queen of Lesbian Pulp' for authoring several landmark novels beginning in 1957, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Following the release of new editions of 'Beebo Brinker' and 'Odd Girl Out', 'I Am a Woman' finds college student Laura fleeing from campus heartbreak over sorority sister Beth's decision to marry a man and into the arms of the lesbian bohemia of 1950s Greenwich Village. Available now for the first time in ten years, this is the author's favourite in the series.

Review quote

"Bannon was one of a handful of queer pioneers who captured the dramas of lesbian life in fiction, creating emotionally real gay characters in a world that scorned homosexuals as reprehensible deviants." - San Francisco Bay Guardian
