Publisher's Comments

Blending fiction, myth, and parody, and accompanied by the author's delightful illustrations, Ladies Almanack is a brilliant modernist composition and arguably the most audacious lesbian text of its time. While the book pokes fun at the wealthy expatriates who were author Djuna Barnes' literary contemporaries and remains controversial today, it seems to have delighted its cast of characters, which were also the book's first audience.
