Kate Moira Ryan & Linda S. Chapman from Ann Bannon

Set in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village, this chronicles the lives and loves of Laura, Beth and Beebo as they navigate uncharted territories of desire

Beth and Laura, secret lovers in college, went separate ways after graduation - Beth married and had children and Laura moved to New York

Both pine for each other, but before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the bars with a soft spot for young lesbians fresh off the bus

Based on the books I am a Woman, Women in the Shadow and Journey to a Woman by Ann Bannon


" ... there's gold in that dime-store pulp ... far from being a simple sepia-toned snapshot of the past, this colorful portrait of gay life in the Village startles with the truths it flashes amid the one-liners and melodramatic confrontations" ~ NY Magazine

" ... gently kids the pulpy melodrama of Bannon's dialogue, while always making sure to render her sharp psychological portraits with lots of flesh on their bones" ~ NY Blade
