Hailed as "one of the most significant contributions yet made to feminist literature" by The New York Review of Books and praised by Michel Foucault as being "remarkable for its rediscovering of texts and also for its study of feelings that we no longer find in society," this feminist classic is a fascinating history of women's romantic friendships over the centuries. Includes a new introduction by the author.

Lillian Faderman is a renowned scholar whose books on lesbian relationships in history have earned critical praise and awards. Faderman is a professor of English at California State University in Fresno, California.
