About the Book

"Allen's book will . . . provide the categories that will deepen our understanding of lesbian relationships and of lesbian fiction." --Lesbian Review of Books

"Barnes scholars will . . . want to pick up Carolyn Allen's new book, for it not only offers perceptive readings of Nightwood and the "Little Girl" stories . . ., but traces the example of Barnes's exploration of lesbian power and loss in the fiction of Jeanette Winterson, Rebecca Brown, and the underrated Bertha Harris." --Review of Contemporary Fiction

" . . . fascinating . . . [a] fine volume . . . " --Choice

"Following Djuna is a fascinating analysis of the textual erotics and lyrical seductions of the work of Djuna Barnes and the writers she influences. This scintillating genealogy of lesbian intertextuality . . . expands the field of lesbian and feminist literary inquiry and concepts of lesbian literary production." --Judith Roof

"As lesbian literary history, here is an instant classic." --Jane Marcus

"This is an important and necessary book; even further, speaking as an admirer of the writers and literary works it discusses and as a personal expert on lost love, I find Following Djuna irrestible." --Karen Helfrich, Lambda Book Report

Carolyn Allen argues for the importance of women's fiction in understanding women's erotics--emotional and sexual exchanges between women.
