In 1956, librarian Jeannette Foster Howard published Sex Variant Women in Literature, an exhaustive account of literary references to lesbianism, from the poetry of Sappho to pulp fiction of the 1950s. Amidst Cold War sexual repression, her ďż˝bible of lesbian literatureďż˝ became the first-ever historical study of homosexuals, bisexuals, and transvestites in literature. In this new biography, history professor Passet sheds light on Howard, a foremother of modern queer studies and a lesbian whose own fascinating life spanned the late 19th century to the rise of the gay liberation movement of the 1970s.
