Lauded as the “Queen of Lesbian Pulp” for her landmark novels of the 1950s, Ann Bannon defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Following the release of Cleis Press's new editions of Beebo Brinker and Odd Girl Out, I Am a Woman finds sorority sister Laura Landon leaving college heartbreak behind and embracing Greenwich Village's lesbian bohemia. This edition includes a new introduction by the author.

Laura come's home
- Dandylion "rambunctiously soft spoken."
The story gets worse before its better I hope!
Only if they are interested in what happened to Laura from Odd Girl Out or the first book with Bebo Breeker in it. Because Laura is a fool in love with a straight girl in the 1950's and you know it will end badly for her, why can't we get a happy lesbian story where the lesbian is not the butt of the joke and so full useless drama it is just tiresome, Laura's behavior is crazy and they make drugs for it now..
Laura would get the girl, they would live happily ever after, the girl would be trill and throw herself at Laura and tell her boyfriend to go jump, He was a jerk anyway. Laura was a better caught. Laura would impress everyone at work with hard she works, and she would not have down spells were she got no work done, Even though Susan over heard talking on the phone about her home situation with her roommate/lover to her best friend Jack Susan would still befriend Laura and be her work buddy and though she suspects Laura's gay it would make a difference to Susan though she very straight And the End of the story would have Laura and her new girlfriend helping Jack kick his useless boyfriend out the door and introducing him to a new cut nice guy.And Jack helping to dump Laura's girlfriend's boyfriend off the docks or someplace close to hell. ,
Nothing, she told the written word well, The problem was with the written word,
Laura would be a good role for Meryl Sterp about 10 years ago, or Glen Close, Someone who can do flaky drama,, Almost like a soap actress, Maybe Susan Lucci. Jack should be played by Neil Patrick Harris, Laura girlfriend should be played by Wynna Ridder, Or Jennifer Lawrence/, kate Beckensale, Not sure who should be cast as Susasn
The story was so frustrating for me, Not all Lesbian are erratic, Stalking woman they have crashes on, There work doesn't suffer because they get a crush, and the whole world doesn't end with one bad relationship, The story off no hop to the newly come out, and to us old timers, well it just makes me mad, Beebo was a perfect date and she just insulted her really bad. The speak she gives Beebo near the end is an insult. and nor does it add to the story. ,
