The Lydia Steptoe Stories (D.Barnes) PB

Djuna Barnes  (Author)
´I have quite changed my mind. I am going to run away and become a boy.´

In these three stories, written by Djuna Barnes under the pseudonym Lydia Steptoe, three characters find themselves on the brink of a sexual awakening - accompanied by guns, whips, and worldly innuendo.

A fourteen-year-old girl plans to become ´a virago´, until her mother intercepts her first tryst by dressing up as her male lover. A boy of the same age is lured into the forest by his father´s mistress. A woman of forty falls in love and longs to kill herself, so unbearable is the return of the youth she thought she wanted. ´Alice´, she tells herself, ´be a man.´

Barnes makes gender and desire seem slippery and joyful - and makes the fictional Lydia Steptoe seem like a writer for our time.
