She was the brain, the sparkle, the gay rebel of the sorority, and wonder of wonders, she chose Laura as her roommate. That was how it began. Suddenly they were alone on an island of forbidden bliss.... Here is the first novel in the Beebo Brinker Chronicles, the classic 1950s love stories from the queen of lesbian fiction. Odd Girl Out begins the saga of Laura, off on her own at college, appallingly shy and terminally polite. Laura meets Beth, whose brash straightforwardness and friendly attitude take the younger woman by storm, leading into an equally stormy affair.

    " a classic. Just the time period it was written in makes it worth the read. It's called pulp fiction for the time, and it is. The plot can be a little slow from what I remember, but nobody dies at the end, and considering this time period, it makes it work. "

    " I think Ann Bannon is a very gifted natural writer. Her stories are written so well that they, possibly alone in this genre, surpass their genre parameters. In other words, of interest to anyone that reads. "

    " This was my introduction to lesbian pulp fiction! And I believe I will continue reading. "

    " I don't know what I was expecting from this book but I'm quite sure I didn't get it. I know I didn't get it because the book didn't leave me satisfied, it didn't leave me wanting more. It just left me glad that I was finally done with it. I guess I need to remember that the book was written in the 50s and it's about that time period, but really some of the stuff happening in the book. It could have been over in way fewer pages and probably would have made for a better short story. I guess you have to have something to pave the way for better books. "

    " Not as "pulpy" as the cover leads you to believe. Not a whole lot goes on in the story. Although I appreciate it for what it is worth in lesbian fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis | 1/17/2014

    " I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, by which I mean non-ironically "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pamela Harris | 1/5/2014

    " I am marking this as read but I couldnt finish it. A rarity for me. It was a friends favorite but I just did could not force my way thro it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kit Fox | 11/30/2013

    " Can't stop reading that classic lesbian pulp fiction. Pretty impressive for a pulp yarn written by a 21-year-old suburban housewife. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 11/22/2013

    " Just as good/bad as I remembered. Oh Laura Landon, you are such a self-hating pill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 'helen' | 11/16/2013

    " finally got down to reading this - one must suspend one's historical context a bit - this is total 50-60s pulp, and enjoyable as a retro-read... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 7/25/2013

    " Delightfully trashy. it indulged my as of yet superficial fascination with the ways sexuality was negotiated historically.... in the campiest way possible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grania | 7/22/2013

    " 1950's lesploitation novel, best read with bated breath. Marvel at the trashy covers! gasp at the plot synopsis! thrill at the rigid butch/femme dynamic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 3/26/2013

    " Awesome example of lesbian pulp fiction. Wonderful and poignant at the same time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 11/28/2012

    " This is brain candy, but it's some of the best lesbian brain candy I've read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alice | 8/23/2012

    " Read it if you like your women conniving but also quite whiney and self-conscious. The cover art was the best part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 8/2/2012

    " Delightfully trashy... exactly what I expect from a lesbian pulp fiction book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victorious | 5/28/2012

    " Just read it, okay? "
