A classic pulp tale showcasing predatory beatnik men, drug hallucinations, and secret lesbian trysts, "The Girls in 3-B" approaches the theme of sex from the stiffened vantage point of 1950s psychology.
Annice, Pat, and Barby are best friends from Iowa, freshly arrived in booming 1950s Chicago to explore different paths toward independence, self--expression, and sexual freedom. From the hip-hang of a bohemian lifestyle to the sophisticated lure of romance with a handsome, wealthy, married boss to the happier security of a lesbian relationship, these three experience firsthand the dangers and limitations of women's economic -reliance on men. Well-known lesbian pulp author Valerie Taylor skillfully paints a sociological portrait of the emotional and economic pitfalls of heterosexuality in 1950s America-and then offers a defiantly subversive alternative. A classic pulp tale showcasing predatory beatnik men, drug hallucinations, and secret lesbian trysts, "The Girls in 3-B" approaches the theme of sex from the stiffened vantage point of 1950s psychology.
