This book was like a fountain in the desert to me when I was a young lesbian. It was orginally written and published in the 1950's.
The complete title of the book is actually "I am A Woman In Love With a Woman Must Society Reject Me."
Ann Bannon has said she wrote the book in order to save her own sanity. I know it helped save mine.
The novel revolves around Laura who has left college because Beth, her first lover, chose to marry a man rather than continue the relationship with Laura.
Laura, an enigmatic young woman, delicately blonde, tries to turn her back on her lesbian feelings, and live her life with no emotional involvement.
Fate has other things in mind for Laura. Thru her roommate Marcie and Marcie's ex-husband, Burr, Laura meets a cyncial, witty, highly intelligent and closeted gay man, Jack.
And thru Jack, Laura meets one of the most famous butch lesbian characters of all time, the boyishly handsome, charmatic Beebo Brinker.
I have read and re-read this book perhaps a dozen times or more, and will undoubtedly read it yet again.
