Women in the Shadows: Book Three of the Beebo Brinker Chronicles


By Ann Bannon

Designated the "Queen of Lesbian Pulp" for her landmark novels beginning in 1957, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation.

Following the release of Cleis Press's new editions of Odd Girl Out and Beebo BrinkerWomen in the Shadows picks up with Beebo's relationship with Laura waning, as both women become caught in the cultural tumult (gay bar raids, heavy drinking, gay rights advocacy) that anticipates by ten years the Stonewall Rebellion of 1969.

A new introduction explains the book's evolution, including the role Bannon's divorce played in shaping the lesbian protagonist's outrage.
