Designated the 'Queen of Lesbian Pulp' for authoring several landmark novels beginning in 1957, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Unlike many writers of the period, however, Bannon's stories broke through the shame and isolation typically portrayed in lesbian pulps, offering instead women characters who embraced their sexuality. With Odd Girl Out, Bannon introduces Laura Landon, whose love affair with her college roommate Beth launched the lesbian pulp fiction genre.

User Review  - Jes Marie - Goodreads

This book is literally what a lesbian soap opera would appear. It has a lay out like a lot of LGBT movies do as well. Fascinating to read about what gay culture was like in the 50s and how it was viewed Read full review
