Gabrielle Everall / Les Belles Lettres

Regular price $22.00 Sale

Les Belles Lettres is an in-depth poetic exploration of the secret and public lives of well-known lesbian and feminist writers, including Sappho, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf and Djuna Barnes.

Gabrielle Everall's latest collection takes the reader on a wild romp through history; filtered by her naughty and irreverent imagination.

"...technically astute, beautifully written, demonstrates an exceptional mastery of language and knowledge of modernist lesbian writing and its incredibly moving...a wonderfully innovative contribution to articulations of lesbian embodiment in all its diversity."
Nikki Sullivan

"Everall's poem-book, Dona Juanita and the Love of Boys shifts certainties in deeply literary and confronting ways. I feel this is one of the most important poetic narratives to have appeared in the English language..."
