Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wild Women! Lurid Adventures! Shocking Desires! And A Lot Of Filing.

The story your mother never told you — printed here for your own good. Lois Lenz was like any other wholesome former cheerleader with a knack for office skills — until she took a job at Sather & Sterling in bustling Bay City. Spending her days in the cut-throat typing pool and her nights at the all-women's residence of Magdalena Arms, Lois had no idea she was entering a world of working girls whose passionate desires — and fabulous fashion sense — could lead any innocent lamb astray...

  • Netta — serious and smart, she's unlike any woman Lois has known...
  • Maxie — The height of society fashion, and girls are so very in style...
  • Pamela — Lois's old high school Pep Squad pal certainly has changed...
  • Miss Gill — the office manager has secrets and plenty of file cabinets to keep them in...
  • Dolly — an actress whose martini shaker is as busy as her love life...
  • Mrs. Pierson — "The hyena," Lois's boss, her office is a place of hard work and private dictation...
  • And many more!
Lois Lenz — she was a good girl a long way from home about to discover that not everything is what it seems, navy is a bad suit choice, and love can bloom in the strangest of places...

Review:

"'Unabashedly campy and titillating, Nolan's debut novel (after short story collection The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories) is a tale of 1950s lesbian career girls loose in the big city. Innocent suburban cheerleader Lois Lenz is thrilled when her guidance counselor suggests she forgo junior college and take a secretarial position in nearby Bay City. Leaving behind Faye, her best friend and kissing practice partner, Lois rents a room at the Magdalena Arms, a once reputable boarding house for career girls that has fallen into disrepair. As the personal secretary to the cutthroat ad exec Mrs. Pierson, Lois must juggle her new career with her new friends and their search for the truth behind the disappearance of the girl who once lived in Lois's room. Lois eventually partakes in a few Sapphic trysts before realizing her true 'deviant' nature (as she puts it). Nolan effortlessly parodies the world of the career girl and tries to do for the growing lesbian pulp genre what Hammett and Chandler did for the private dick novels of the 1940s. While its appeal will be limited, this is a must-read for any fan of steamy pulp fiction.' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)"
