Description
The author of Slammerkin and Room, Emma Donoghue here examines how desire between women in literature has been portrayed over the centuries, from schoolgirls and vampires to runaway wives, from cross-dressing knights to contemporary murderesses. Donoghue excavates the long-obscured tradition of friendship between women—one that is surprisingly central to our cultural history—in works from Chaucer, Shakespeare, Sade, Balzac, and Hardy to Radclyffe Hall, Agatha Christie, Patricia Highsmith, and Sarah Waters.

"Were an intelligent, determined scholar to set herself the task of sifting through the last thousand years of Western culture's literary output, would she be able to discern a 'historical moment when something changed in the way women's love was experienced and interpreted'? The short answer is no, not really. The longer answer is Inseparable: Desire Between Women in Literature.... Donoghue's adroit commentary, along with her chronologically organized bibliography, makes Inseparable necessary for scholars and enlightening and often amusing for anyone else."—NYTBR
