Description : Dory Quillin, nineteen-years old, her white-blonde hair ruffled by the gentle breezes of a June evening, lies dead in the parking lot of a lesbian bar. Her bewildered silver-blue eyes stare beseechingly into the mind and soul of the woman who kneels beside her: LAPD homicide detective Kate Delafield. The investigation is far from a simple matter. Kate uncovers shocking facts about the brief life of the murdered young lesbian. She finds her road to the killer obstructed by Dory’s uncooperative, judgmental parents, the waning interest of her own partner, and most frustrating of all, the open hostility of women who should be her allies—the lesbians who frequent the Nightwood Bar. Kate’s emotional equilibrium is further disturbed by her powerful attraction to one of those women, the enigmatic Andrea Ross. Who killed Dory Quillin? And why? Accompany Kate Delafield on her electrifying, emotional journey to the answer, an answer you will never forget.

Description : Murder by the Book? is a thorough - and thoroughly enjoyable - look at the blossoming genre of the feminist crime novel in Britain and the United States. Sally Munt asks why the form has proved so attractive as a vehicle for oppositional politics; whether the pleasures of detective fiction can be truly transgressive; and when exactly it was that the dyke detective appeared as the new super-hero for today. Along the way Munt poses some critical questions about the relations between fiction and activism, politics and representations, the writer and the reader. This will be an enticing book both for addicts of the genre and for teachers and their students.

Description : Tracing the growth of lesbian Gothic fiction over the 25 years since the advent of the Women's Movement and Gay Liberation in the 1970s, this text discusses a wide selection of novels and stories, contextualizing and re-evaluating them in the light of changing currents in lesbian/queer culture and politics. The figure of the lesbian, frequently portrayed in a homophobic/misogynistic light, has long been a standard component of popular Gothic fiction and film. The author argues, however, that in more contemporary fiction, motifs and modes of fiction with Gothic associations, such as the witch, the vampire, the spectral visitor and the Gothic thriller, have been appropriated by writers adopting a lesbian viewpoint to articulate the transgressive aspect of lesbian sexuality and existence.

Description : The Point. A town tucked away at the end of the road on the Florida-Georgia border. Dix's parents are here, her brother and his family, and Iris, her indomitable, iron-tough grandmother. Dix has returned, drawn by the need to share dying Iris's final days. And to make a crucial decision about her relationship with Sarah. If Dix has escape from the Point into a more expansive world, the Point has molded her in ways she is only beginning to fathom. Coming home to her family means once more confronting their disappointment, their condemnation of her choice to leave her marriage for a woman. Then Sarah shows up, claiming her right to be part of Dix's present and future. And to each member of Dix's appalled family, to the astonished town--she issues a frank challenge: her unabashed, unapologetic, forthright lesbian self. The authentic, compelling, indelible portrait of a family in today's south is one of the finest novels of this, or any other, year.

Description : Gabrielle Griffin onderzoekt in deze publicatie het schrijven over en van lesbische vrouwen. Ze behandelt klassiekers als The well of loneliness, maar ook pulpliteratuur en lesbische science fiction. Ze stelt dat de politisering van vrouwen in de jaren 1960 en 1970 lesbische vrouwen in staat stelde om vanuit de schemering in de schijnwerpers te komen, zowel in de maatschappij als in de literatuur. Het resultaat is een diepgaand inzicht in de manier waarop vrouwen schrijven en hun seksuele identiteiten construeren in de hedendaagse cultuur. In het zesde hoofdstuk gaat de auteur dieper in op de beeldvorming van lesbische seksualiteit in werken van vrouwen.
