'What do I care for the world's opinion? What do I care for anything but you'
Named by her wealthy father, who wanted a boy, Stephen knows she does not fit in. She hates wearing her hair long, loves riding, reading and fencing and, she soon realizes, is attracted to women. From the battlefields of the First World War and to the streets of bohemian Paris, The Well of Loneliness recounts her passionate search for love and fulfilment.
The subject of one of the most notorious obscenity trials in history, Radclyffe Hall's landmark 1928 work of lesbian fiction is a moving portrayal of a woman determined to live life on her own terms.
