The Well of Loneliness

The Well of Loneliness


This pride month, discover the groundbreaking and moving lesbian novel that rocked the British establishment.

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 a place at the home she loves becomes untenable.

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

The complete and enhanced edition contains extra information and archival material that tells the fascinating story behind The Well’s controversial publication, trial and ban in 1928.
