Stranger on Lesbos

Valerie Taylor

Afterword by Marcia Gallo

Sexy, beautiful, frustrated...a neglected housewife finds the delights and degradations of forbidden love.

Frances, a 1950s housewife, becomes bored with her suburban life and enrolls in a class at the local community college. When she meets Blake, a butch lesbian, her life completely changes. In thrall to a forbidden world of martini lunches, late nights at queer bars, and a sexual passion she never knew was possible, Frances must choose between the safety of Heterosexual marriage or the dangers of life on the edge of society.

In this age of Mad Men fever, the re-issue of Stranger on Lesbos comes at the perfect moment, invoking an era we can't help but romanticize yet despise.

"The reissue of Valerie Taylor’s Stranger on Lesbos (Feminist Press) is cause to celebrate."
