A fascinating look into the most private aspects of the intimate relationships of seven famous writers of the early 1900s. I was especially excited to learn more about Radclyffe Hall, having inherited my mother's 1st edition copy of The Well of Loneliness 25 years ago. Roiphe explores with penetrating insight the conscious and not-so-conscious motivations, advantages and costs of their controversial and "uncommon" relationships.
