    1. This novel, originally published in 1938, is a breath of fresh air from a period of tragic lesbian pulps in which lesbian characters always end up dead, crazy, or both. The writing style leaves a lot to be desired. Written without quotation marks and with abrupt changes in scene without ever telling the reader where we are now, or with whom, this novel is not easy to stay focused on. Nevertheless, the story is so timeless and the characters so relatable that any woman can find herself in Morgen [...]

    2. Wilhelm has such an odd and interesting style. Reminds me a little of HD's prose, but not as opaque. I looooved "We Too Are Drifting" but this one was a little slow.

Finally he gets it when she takes him aside and says kindly, "hey, I'm gay, and this is my lover." That's it, that's the whole book.

Now I can't even remember how I finally came across it the other week.This book was short, and I would've liked it to be longer. Firstly, because I enjoyed Gale Wilhelm's writing. Something about it drew me in instantly. Though vague on some details (such as when the scene had changed) it was evocative of I don't even know. But it made me feel sort of dreamy and nostalgic. Secondly, [...]

    5. Early 20th century (1938) lesbian literature. This was a painfully beautiful novella revolving around a young woman named Morgen Tuetenberg. In the beginning of the story, Morgen is caring for her sick father, the renowned painter, Fritz Tuetenberg. During a walk, she meets a pianist named, Royal St. Gabriel, who falls for her at first sight. The death of Morgen's father leaves her empty, and Royal wishes to fill this emptiness, but Morgen doesn't feel truly complete until Toni enters her life.T [...]
