Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall

Book Description

A powerful novel of love between women, THE WELL OF LONELINESS brought about the most famous legal trial for obscenity in the history of British law. Banned on publication in 1928, it then went on to become a classic bestseller. Stephen Gordon (named by a father desperate for a son) is not like other girls: she hunts, she fences, she reads books, wears trousers and longs to cut her hair. As she grows up amidst the stifling grandeur of Morton Hall, the locals begin to draw away from her, aware of some indefinable thing that sets her apart. And when Stephen Gordon reaches maturity, she falls passionately in love - with another woman.

Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall Well of Loneliness, Paperback (July 2015)

As a little girl Stephen Gordon always felt different. A talent for sport, a hatred of dresses and a preference for solitude were not considered suitable for a young lady of the Victorian upper-class. But when she grows up and falls in love with another woman, her standing in the county and her place at the home she loves become untenable.

Your John by Radclyffe Hall Your John, Paperback (March 1999)

A collection of letters written between 1934 and 1942 by the lesbian novelist, Radclyffe Hall, to Evguenia Souline, a White Russian emigree. They provide a detailed, intimate record of Hall's personal life and convictions, and of how politics, money and geography undermined these women's dreams.
