Publisher's Summary

Ann Bannon was designated the “Queen of Lesbian Pulp” for authoring several landmark novels in the ’50s. Unlike many writers of the period, however, Bannon broke through the shame and isolation typically portrayed in lesbian pulps, offering instead characters who embraced their sexuality. With Beebo Brinker, Bannon introduces a butch 17-year-old farm girl newly arrived in Beat-era Greenwich Village.


What the Critics Say

"The eponymous protagonist is sent packing from her stodgy Wisconsin home after wearing drag to the state fair. She relocates to Greenwich Village, New York's capital of the avant-garde, where she is free to pursue 'love that smolders in the shadows of the twilight world'. This is more kitschy now but still fun for its 1950s sensibilities." (Library Journal)

Interesting glimpse into a life

Not a book I would normally go for, but a very enjoyable read. Believable characters and a good narrative. At times it felt like the dialogue didn't flow with too many "she said, he said", but this may have seemed to be just how the narrator said it.
