Lillian Faderman tells the compelling story of lesbian life in the 20th century, from the early 1900s to today's diverse lifestyles. Using journals, unpublished manuscripts, songs, news accounts, novels, medical literature, and numerous interviews, she relates an often surprising narrative of lesbian life.
"A key work...the point of reference from which all subsequent studies of 20th-century lesbian life in the United States will begin."--San Francisco Examiner.
