Her books are superb, her painstaking research for almost every biography she writes is, in itself, equivalent to a PhD.
I am besotted my her magnificent books and her unique contribution to lesbian literature and history.
Wild Girls : Natalie Barney & Romaine Brooks is an intoxicated read - thrilling, moving, heady. Read it!
