Beebo Brinker is described as lesbian pulp fiction Written in 1962 by Ann Bannon it is a preuel to the immensely popular series featuring this character The series is one huge stepping stone along the path of gay and lesbian acceptance in the communityIt s hard to know how to approach this review Do I treat it solely as a reading experience from my present day perspective Do I give weight to its social and historical significance Do I allow my emotions and heart to weigh in and give a subjective me review Well I always do that so I m not going to change thereThe series has been republished by the ever awesome Cleis Press Beebo Brinker although written last is chronologically the first in the series Having never read any of these before I elected to start here Let me say I was uite fond of Beebo as a character It s hard not to feel sympathy for the awkward girl driven away from her rural home town coming friendless and nearly penniless to New York It s easy to fall under the sway of her boyish handsome face and muscular figure and her wit and naivety It s harder to feel sympathy for the Beebo who treats her girlfriend the doormat that is Paula Ash with the same disrespect and callousness that rouses her ire when she observes her boss treating his wife the same way But then there is so much stress on the mannish Beebo in these pages and this was how many men treated their little women in the 1950s See what I mean about Beebo as historical document I will not make a Galaxy uest reference here oh no I won tFrom my present day perspective clich d characters abound there are a lot of early declarations of love I remember at least three and there s a bit of unfinished business in the plot But it doesn t matter Beebo as historical document again in this case lesbian pulp fiction of the 1950s It is what it is I enjoyed reading this Sure it dragged a little at times and I had to make a conscious effort to overlook some things that made my present day reading eye tsk tsk a little and a bigger effort to overlook other things that made my present day feminist euality eye narrow in disgust but the book as a whole As uncritical pure pleasure with a healthy dollop of sentimentality with an awareness of what it would mean to lesbians of the era to read something like this Loved it Hey Beebo Never give up Never surrender
