Three years after We Walk Alone, Ann Aldrich expands on her journalistic portraits of lesbian subcultures in and around New York to include: class questions; the diverse jobs lesbians held; social cliques; differences among the “Village,” “Uptown,” and Brooklyn communities; and hints at the growing consciousness that would fuel later lesbian and gay rights movements. The sequel closes with sample letters from the six hundred written to Aldrich after We Walk Alone was published.

"[Aldrich's] sophisticated prose is anything but solipsistic. She is simultaneously intimate and investigative, subjective and discerning. . . . these essential cultural artifacts . . . [are] a fascinating unruly read." —UTNE Magazine

"Aldrich touched innumerable lives and gave hope to lesbians mired in a harsh and ignorant era. Read these books to learn what it was like back then, what we believed and how we made a start in the struggle against prejudice." —Ann Bannon, author of The Beebo Brinker Chronicles

"Will transport today's readers . . . to the 1950s homosexual scene. . . . Candid, cautionary writings [that] helped fuel a social change movement." —Marcia M. Gallo, author of Different Daughters
