‘Written On The Body’ by Jeanette Winterson

‘Written On The Body’ by Jeanette Winterson

‘Written on the Body’ has been variously described by critics as a “discourse on the measure of love,”, a “study of human anatomy” and a “meditation on finding love and being lovers”. It can and is all of these things. The genderless narrator has a history of getting involved with married women who refuse to leave their husbands. The narrator spends a good portion of the first part of the book lamenting how she/he was misled and ultimately...

Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary by Monica Nolan

Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary by Monica Nolan

Remember those popular lesbian pulp fiction books with the sexy cover illustrations? Me neither. It was before my time too. But we’ve all seen and yes, enjoyed (and even snorted at) those tawdry covers. Admit it ladies! It’s a guilty pleasure. Monica Nolan’s Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary is unabashed, campy parody. It completely spoofs the lesbian pulp fiction of the 1950’s and 1960’s as well as the beliefs and mores of the time. After her...
