What Lesbians do in Books edited by Elaine Hobby and Chris White

What Lesbians do in Books is the first British anthology of critical writing about lesbians as writers, readers and as characters in literature.
From Sappho to Virginia Woolf, from The Well of Loneliness to Three Ply Yarn, from lesbian readings of the garden of Eden, and Sanskrit myths, to contemporary feminist thrillers and Black lesbian poetry, this innovative study reveals the richness and variety of lesbian literary history, culture and politics.
