Women in the Shadows book.

Women in Shadows is screwy to me at some point but i really like Ann Bannons' work. Its continuation of Laura marrying Jack Mann and having a baby. I love how the main character grew on her own way then while everything is all well and good then you realize she's still a human being and tend to make a whole lot of mistake. com User, January 25, 2003. I was initially offended by the violent overtones of the relationship between Laura and Beebo. However, reading the author's afterword opens some light into the nature of the darkness in this novel.

Tris had treated her badly but she had treated her beautifully too. With a little start of alarm, Laura knew she was falling in love. Maybe it was worse than that already. t with no moon, only the dozens of quiet yellow streetlights. Her heels rang against the cement sidewalk as she turned down Cordelia Street and she left the world outside with regret when she opened her apartment door. She knew Beebo would be there by now. If she's only not drunk she thought to herself. Beebo? she called aloud

If you liked Odd Girl Out and really like Ann Bannon, don't bother with this one. Yes, it and the series it's part of are landmark works of lesbian fiction and it's worth the read for that reason alone. Still, that doesn't make it enjoyable. The forward by Ms. Bannon sheds a lot of light on why this book is as dark and self-loathing as this one is. Still, as I said before, it just wasn't enjoyable. It was angry and very bitter and quite sad, too. Lots of violence and very little empathy. Just a bunch of people at absolute rock bottom. This is understandble considering the time period, but I couldn't finish it. I ended up hating all the characters I loved - or at least tolerated - in the first two books.

Be prepared for graphic violence and furthermore a depiction of abusive relationships.

Not a great read. I liked book 1 from the series better. Laura is a selfish, destructive character. No redeeming qualities. At least Beebo changed for the better in the end. Didn't care for Jack's character either. Too pathetic.

I enjoyed this book as well as the other books in this series. I highly, highly recommend it to anyone.

.... I was initially offended by the violent overtones of the relationship between Laura and Beebo. However, reading the author's afterword opens some light into the nature of the darkness in this novel. Her preceding two novels in the series, Odd Girl Out, and Beebo Brinker, take an idealized and fantasized view of lesbian relationships. This novel attempts a more realistic approach to the real problems that plague relationships, including lesbian ones. The setting in which the book was written greatly affected the author, as homosexuality was indeed considered an unnatural, unhealthy affliction for the time period of the 1950s. While the characters display a desire to be 'normal' the author is unwavering in that they are, at the heart, gay, and no amount of wishing or trying can change that. While the female protaganist does indeed marry the gay male protaganist, she does NOT become romantically involved with him and maintains her defiant lesbianism throughout. This book explores themes no lesbian comtemporary author was doing at the time: interracial relationships, artificial insemination, domestic abuse, even femme-femme (as opposed to the proverbial butch-femme) attraction. ....
This novel has important historical significance. Originally published in 1959, this novel broke from the formula of 1950's lesbian pulp fiction. It dealt with real issues in lesbian relationships like domestic violence, racism, and internalized homophobia. Other lesbian pulp fiction novels of the time were simply voyeuristic looks at lesbians and fostered the image that lesbians were predatory monsters. The women in this novel were tied to 1950's conventions, but they were still ahead of their time. The plot leaves much to be desired; it is very depressing. However, this book should not be brushed aside because it is outdated. In its proper historical context, this novel is a masterpiece.
