New Books Not to Miss: August

Thérèse and Isabelle By: Violette Leduc
“Thérèse and Isabelle is the tale of two boarding school girls in love. In 1966 when it was originally published in France, the text was censored because of its explicit depiction of young homosexuality. With this publication, the original, unexpurgated text–a stunning literary portrayal of female desire and sexuality–is available to a US audience for the first time.”

Lambda Literary’s List of August Releases including The Still Life Las Vegas, Orphan #8, and David Levithan’s new novel.
