We Walk Alone Gift Set
Ann Aldrich in her twenties used her own observations of lesbian life for "We Walk Alone". Controversial yet also a 1950s mini guidebook to 'where the girls are'. For all of its flaws it is a wonderful example of how far we've come. This is the only nonfiction lesbian book offered by Lavender Pulp in addition to Women's Barracks which is quasi-autographical.

What's included:
"We Walk Alone" lesbian book Gift Sets are elegantly gift wrapped in organza and include an original collectible lesbian 1950s-60s paperback (not a reproduction), a custom designed pulp bookmark and a 1 inch Fun Button.

These rare, hard-to-find lesbian pulp fiction novels are original paperbacks from the 1950s and 60s, NOT REPRODUCTIONS. We scour book fairs and conventions across the US and Europe to find them. All vintage books for our lesbian gift sets must pass a rigid set of standards. They have no tears, marks or rips.

Summary:
Reflective of the times, a Kinsey-like report of "underground" lesbian life in Greenwich Village. The author read "The Homosexual in America" which was a nonfiction book about gay men. Noticing there was nothing similar for lesbians, she used her own observations of lesbians as well as her own experiences intending to provide further enlightenment on the subject of lesbianism and bisexuality.

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.
