Radclyffe Hall was one of the most pre-eminent female writers in the first half of the 20th century. Hall was famous for her openly homosexual lifestyle and high profile relationships, her most well known novel was the classic 'The Well of Loneliness', the novel was criticised and finally banned in the United Kingdom after a newspaper campaign which led to a court case which judged it obscene for defending "unnatural practices between women". This biography is an insight into the life of Radclyffe Hall, a women who is still talked about as a pioneer by some but is vilified by others for reinforcing homophobic stereotypes. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
