Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This treasure from the golden age of lesbian pulp fiction picks up where Stranger on Lesbos left off. Deserted by her butch lover, Frances struggles to reintegrate into conventional married life. But no amount of resolve can keep her away from a new lover, the boyish Erika who lures her back into the melodrama of lesbian life.

Valerie Taylor is the pen name of Velma Young, author of the most enduring lesbian pulp classics including Whisper Their Love (1957), The Girls in 3-B (1959), Stranger on Lesbos (1960), World Without Men (1963), Journey to Fulfillment (1964), and Ripening (1988).

Synopsis:

Sapphic suburban housewife Frances seeks fulfillment and love from the odd girls and twilight lovers of small-town America's queer demi-monde.

About the Author

VALERIE TAYLOR is the pen name of Velma Young, author of the lesbian pulp classics Whisper Their Love (1957), The Girls in 3-B (1959), World Without Men (1963), Journey to Fulfillment (1964), and Ripening (1988). With the $500 proceeds of her first novel, Hired Girl (1953), Taylor bought a pair of shoes, two dresses, and hired a divorce lawyer. After leaving her husband, she kicked off a prolific career as the author of pulp fiction novels, poetry (under the name of Nacella Young), and romances (under the name Francine Davenport). A long-time activist for gay and lesbian rights, she was a co-founder of Mattachine Midwest and the Lesbian Writers Conference in Chicago.
