Designated the "Queen of Lesbian Pulp" for her landmark novels beginning in 1957, Ann Bannonís work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Following the release of Cleis Pressís new editions of Beebo Brinker and Odd Girl Out, Women in the Shadows picks up with Beeboís relationship with Laura waning, as both women become caught in the cultural tumult (gay bar raids, heavy drinking, gay rights advocacy) that anticipates by ten years the Stonewall Rebellion of 1969. New introduction explains the bookís evolution, including the role Bannonís divorce played in shaping the lesbian protagonistís outrage.

Ann Bannon is the author of classic lesbian pulp novels such as Odd Girl Out, Women in the Shadows, and Journey to a Woman. She lives in Sacramento, CA.
