Summary:
Olivia, a teenager from London is sent to a Parisian finishing school where she learns literature, history and culture from Mademoiselle Julie. She also encounters jealousies and whispered rumors. Her biggest lesson is of first love and all its complexities. Written in a poetic narrative with lush language and descriptive details.

What are "Real" Lesbian Pulps?

Our goal is to track down only those written by women, geared toward the lesbian community since many 1950s lesbian pulps were written under pseudonyms, marketed to the general public. 

Where do the books come from?
We search our butts off! We scour book fairs, auctions, private collections and conventions to create these perfect lesbian gifts. We contact booksellers and book collectors from the USA, Canada and parts of Europe. We are excited to have several copies that have survived in excellent condition. Make one of them yours!

Are these newly released reprints?
No, Lavender Pulp sells rare authentic vintage collectible paperback lesbian novels, NOT reproductions. Available only in limited quantities, these rare lesbian books are over 50 years old. 
 
Making the Cut
All books must pass a rigid set of standards. Many rare books do not survive in good condition. We inspect each paperback and include only those that are graded VG/VG+ (Very Good) by traditional bookseller standards into our lesbian gift sets. They have no tears, marks or rips.
