Beebo Brinker

A “preuel” to the preceding tales Although it was written last in the series this story brings Beebo from the hayfields of Wisconsin t. Published chronologically last Beebo Brinker is technically the preuel to the chronicles set about 15 years back from the events of Women in Shadows We get to meet Beebo when is young and inexperienced and watch her find herself in NY and become comfortable with her identity It s fascinating because she is such a far cry from the Beebo Brinker at the end of Women in Shadows and it s really interesting for the reader to get such a well rounded sense of the character s journey Some great characters in this book too particularly the love interest It s strange to think how things have changed since and how some things and views really haven t changed that much despite how much time has passed There is still an abundance of discrimination taking place Gay rights situation in this progressive civilized great world of ours certainly still leaves a lot to be desired but then again Montana just decriminalized gay sex so insert sarcasm hurray for progress and euality and all that Yey But I digressBeebo Brinker is a good and enjoyable read Recommended

This is a lesbian pulp novel from the 60s one I am reading for a ueer writing course I was surprised by the fact it wasn t terrible prose however that happy surprise was mitigated by characterization that s impossible to believe Character motivations seem false and there are three three instances of love at first sight that are not earned or believable Also honestly for a book whose main purpose is to titillate there should really be sex

    “Beebo Brinker” is described as ‘lesbian pulp fiction’ Written in 1962 by Ann Bannon it is a preuel to the immensely popular series featuring this character The series is one huge stepping stone along the path of gay and lesbian acceptance in the communityIt’s hard to know how to approach this review Do I treat it solely as a reading experience from my present day perspective? Do I give weight to its
