Writing in New York City in the 1950s and 60s, March Hastings was one of the most prolific authors of the lesbian pulp era. Her books are now widely sought after by collectors. In Three Women, Phil Carlson's marriage proposal is 18-year-old Paula's ticket out of the tenement and dingy life with her alcoholic father. But the dream dissolves the moment Paula meets Byrne, Phil's wealthy aunt. Byrne, an artist who lives in Greenwich Village, is bewitched by Paula's crush on her and daringly allows it to blossom, despite the dark secret that forever ties her to another woman.
"From this safe distance, there's a sense of romance and danger to those days and something wonderfully exciting, erotic even, about all the secrecy and subterfuge. Perhaps that's why lesbian pulp novels still hold a fascination for all of us." — LesbianNation.com
