    “This jacket goes both ways” – the dust jacket can be flipped for the male/female version.

    “The paperbacks profiled in ‘Queer Pulp’ illustrate the heightened awareness of sexual diversity issues in the mid-twentieth century. Featuring the work of well-known authors such as W. Somerset Maugham and Truman Capote, to the lowbrow and no-brow scribes who worked under several names at once, ‘Queer Pulp’ recovers a lost chapter in American publishing history and is an entertaining introduction to these lost, lurid literary genres.”

    Filled with great cover art photos, too.
