The Mesh Gift Set
Awarded the prize of Les Lettres Francaises in 1948. Lesbian pulp fiction is now recognized as an important part of the gay rights movement. The Mesh has been described as "a work of sensitivity, candor and psychological probing written in the great realistic tradition of (french novelists) Stendhal and Balzac". A good choice for the sophisticated or analytical reader. Makes a unique lesbian gift.

What's included:
The Mesh lesbian book Gift Set is elegantly gift wrapped in organza and includes an original collectible lesbian 1950s-60s paperback (not a reproduction), a custom designed pulp bookmark and a 1 inch Fun Button.

These rare collectible paperback novels, available in limited quantities are over 50 years old. All books in the LavenderPulp gift sets must pass a rigid set of standards. They have no tears, marks or rips. We inspect each paperback and include only those that are graded VG/VG+ (Very Good) by traditional bookseller standards.

Summary
Lucie Marchal's skillfully written novel of desire between two sister-in-laws is told against the backdrop of one family's complicated cycle of power, possession and rebellion. Marchal tackles the subject with a keen observation of detail and an acute analysis of her characters' emotional makeup offering a probing analysis of family relationships, neurotic tensions and half-understood feelings.

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.

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.
