The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall

The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall

£8.99Price

The Well of Loneliness tells the story of tomboyish Stephen, who hunts, wears trousers and cuts her hair short - and who gradually comes to realise that she is attracted to women. Charting her romantic and professional adventures during the First World War and beyond, the novel provoked a furore on first publication in 1928 for its lesbian heroine and led to a notorious legal trial for obscenity. Hall herself, however, saw the book as a pioneer work and today it is recognised as a landmark work of gay fiction.

 

This Penguin edition includes a new introduction by Maureen Duffy.
