NOW YOU SEE ME: Lesbian Life Stories

A new book by Jane Traies

Jane has been recording the life histories of older women who identify as lesbian for nearly a decade now and the narratives in her latest book are drawn from this archive of “hidden histories”.  The new book is a collection of powerful personal accounts, told in women’s own words, which vividly recreate a time when being lesbian meant either hiding your true identity or paying the price for breaking society’s rules…

Clare Summerskill describes the book as “a pure delight from beginning to end” where the stories are told beautifully and honestly.  With that endorsement, you’ll no doubt want to get hold of a copy:

Published by Tollington Press and costs £11.99 plus p&p
