Lesbian Pulp Fiction Novel – Journey to A Woman – Ann Bannon

20 Mar

This is the first (and only – I really want to get my hands on some more) lesbian pulp fiction novel from the heyday of pulp fiction (it was published in 1960) I have read. I love the cover art for this novel. Although this a re-release by Cleis Press from the 2000’s, it still evokes something of retro lesbian romance.

I have had a long fascination with the artwork of pulp fiction covers, especially those depicting beautiful and glamorous femme fatales, and lesbian romances. There is something fascinating and enthralling about the style, colours and scenes depicted. And I have to admit I love the kitschness in the titles and scenes. There is a sexuality, but no actual sex is depicted, and terribly titilating!
