Why do women keep trying to pin Kat down? She’s a free spirit. When she returns to Manhattan from a winter holiday with her latest conquest — bored and desperate to escape those sweet words and caresses — she learns that her landlady has allowed her apartment to become occupied by another tenant. How can she get it back? Bribery, blackmail, seduction — nothing is too much for clever Kat. Meanwhile, Kat’s sexual restlessness leads her into tryst after tryst, searching for the man, woman, or couple who can finally satisfy her.

Like a female counterpart to John Rechy’s Numbers, World of Women is a feast of moving bodies and brief encounters.

Working in New York City in the mid-1960s, Carol Caine wrote seven lesbian pulp novels, including Teen Butch, Gay Girls, and Switch Hitter, that explore the darker emotions with rare honesty and sophistication.
