RADCLYFFE HALL A Life in the Writing.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, (2011.). First edition - As the most famous lesbian novel ever written 'The Well of Loneliness' has ecliped the overall writings of Hall. This book offers us "the first full look at the entire range of Hall's published and unpublished works of fiction, poetry, and autobiography . . to demonstrate how she continually played with the details of her own life to help fashion her own identity as well as to bring into existence a public lesbian culture. .. . [Dellamora] uncovers Hall's involvement with other modes of speculative psychology, including Spiritualism, Theosophy, and an eclectic brand of Christian and Buddhist mysticism. Dellamora's Hall is a woman of complex accommodations, able to reconcile her marriage to Troubridge with her passionate affairs with other women, and her experimental approach to gender and sexuality with her conservative politics and Catholicism. She is . . a figure who has much to contribute to our own efforts to understand transgendered and transsexual existence today." xxii, 309 pp.
