Strange Sisters by Fletcher Flora

The slender bookshelf of outstanding works about sexual deviations must now make room for Fletcher Flora’s honest and perceptive novel, Strange Sisters.

Here is a story of a lesbian and of the devastating crime to which she was driven when she tried to disavow her body’s urgings. Here is a shattering theme treated with rare sensitivity and power.

A paperback original first edition and Flora’s first book. One of 4 novels that lent it’s name to a website devoted to vintage lesbian paperbacks:
