I Am a Woman in Love with a Woman

Title: I Am a Woman in Love with a Woman (Beebo Brinker) (Gold Medal Giant d833)
Author: Ann Bannon
Artist: Photo
Year: 1959

"Home to Laura was a dimly lit and badly ventilated bar on a back street in Greenwich Village. She understood the language there, she understood the customs. Only forbidden desires were recognized and love rarely lasted longer than a night. The tormented and lost women met there, and Laura, slim and boyish, found happiness for the first time in her life."
