The Well of Loneliness, Paperback Book


The complete and enhanced editionThis edition contains extra information and archival material that tells the fascinating story behind The Well's controversial publication, trial and ban in 1928. As a little girl Stephen Gordon always felt different.

A talent for sport, a hatred of dresses and a preference for solitude were not considered suitable for a young lady of the Victorian upper-class.

But when Stephen grows up and falls passionately in love with another woman, her standing in the county and her place at the home she loves become untenable.

Stephen must set off to discover whether there is anywhere in the world that will have her.
