by Valerie Taylor (Author) and Barbara Grier (Introduction)
Joyce is eighteen, a freshman at a fashionable school for girls; suddenly all that matters to her is a woman twice her age. This beautifully written pulp novel from 1957 is widely considered a historic milestone for its openly lesbian, feminist content, which shocked many readers at the time. It has been described as an "anti-romance novel" for its grounding reality of lesbian experience.
Whisper Their Love was the first lesbian novel by Valerie Taylor, which she wrote while raising her three sons; it sold an amazing two million copies. This new edition, which brings this classic book back into print, includes an appendix of historical materials about the book and author, as well as an introduction by Naiad Press co-founder Barbara Grier.
