Dust jacket cover reads: Radclyffe Hall, one of England's great eccentrics, is most famous for her novel The Well of Loneliness. About 'congenital inverts' - lesbian love - it caused a furor when she wrote it in 1928. The Home Secretary of the day called it 'inherently obscene', 'supportive of depraved practice' and 'gravely detrimental to the public interest'. In an extraordinary trial it was banned under the Obscene Publications Act and 'consigned to the King's furnace'. In effect it was the nation's attitude to sex which was on trial rather than the obscenity of Radclyffe Hall's novel. She sent the government, the judiciary and the literary establishment into turmoil. Her candour embarrassed them all. She was spurned by the Bloomsbury set, including Vita Sackville- West and Virginia Woolf, both of whom had lesbian relationships. Radclyffe Hall was born in 1880 in Bournemouth in a house of horrors called 'Sunny Lawn'. Her mother drank gin in the bath in an attempt to terminate the pregnancy. Her parents separated when she was a few weeks old. She was dyslexic, isolated and at the mercy of a violent mother and sexually abusive step-father. Life changed when at the age of 18 she inherited her father's estate of £100,000. She leased a house in Kensington, dressed in chappish clothes, called herself John, travelled, pursued women and wrote her first collection of verse. A complex, extravagant figure, she was a political reactionary yet sexually subversive, a Catholic convert yet a member of the Society for Psychical Research. Fussy about food, dictatorial to the servants, she got her pipes from Dunhill's, wore brocade smoking jackets and diamond cufflinks, had her hair cropped, and was a pivotal figure in the London lesbian scene of the 1920s. Her life was a series of legal and emotional trials. Sexually chauvinistic, she expected absolute loyalty from her partners while she herself had passionate affairs.
