The Well of Loneliness Radclyffe Hall
This iconic work of lesbian literature brought about one of the most famous legal trials for obscenity in British history. Banned on publication in 1928 (at a time when gays and lesbians were termed â€˜invertsâ€™) it then went on to become a classic bestseller. Stephen Gordon is not like other girls: she hunts, she fences, and she wears trousers. Exiled from her home she travels to Paris, becomes an ambulance driver in the First World War, falling passionately in love with another woman.
