Odd Girl Out: Book One of the Beebo Brinker Chronicles


By Ann Bannon

Designated the "Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction" for authoring five landmark novels beginning in 1957 with Odd Girl Out, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation.

Unlike many writers of the period, however, Bannon broke through the shame and isolation typically portrayed in lesbian pulps, offering instead women characters who embrace their sexuality against great odds.

With Odd Girl Out, Bannon introduces Laura Landon, whose love affair with her college roommate Beth launched the lesbian pulp fiction genre as we know it.
