About Book

Radclyffe Hall was the pen-name of Marguerite Radclyffe-Hall, the author of The Well of Loneliness, which on its publication in 1928 became the centre of a trial for obscenity and was banned in Britain until 1949. The novel itself openly discussed lesbian relationships and challenged contemporary ideas about lesbianism.
Radclyffe-Hall's life as well as her novel flouted convention, and Sally Cline's biography, first published in 1998, explores her other literary works, as well as her relationships and politics, which were often at odds.
