Annice, Pat, and Barbie are best friends from rural Iowa, freshly arrived in booming 1950s Chicago to explore different paths toward independence, self-expression, and sexual freedom. From the hip-hang of a bohemian lifestyle to the sophisticated lure of romance with a handsome, wealthy, married boss, to the happier—but taboo—security of a lesbian relationship, these three experience firsthand the dangers and limitations that await spirited young working girls who strike out on their own in a decidedly male-centered world.
"A remarkable slice of bohemia from the 1950s. Valerie Taylor gives 'pulp ' a good name and weaves a wondrous tale of love, lesbianism, poetry, and sex around three young women who leave their small town for the allure of the big city."
"The Girls in 3-B will give you a sense of the dangers and delights of passion between women in another era. . . . Valerie Taylor's much-loved story has achieved well-deserved classic status in the lesbian pulp canon."
