"The unendurable is the beginning of the curve of joy."
A cult classic of lesbian fiction and an important work of modernist literature by the American artist, illustrator, journalist and writer Djuna Barnes. She was raised on the side of Storm King Mountain in a log cabin with her four brothers: Thurn, Zendon, Sexon and Shangar.
Barnes was an innovator of her time and published Nightwood in 1936. She was good friends with James Joyce and publicly had relationships with men and women throughout her life. This book is a must read for anyone interested in widening their knowledge of groundbreaking and inspirational women of the 20th Century. Beautiful introduction by TS Eliot
Quality: Very Good
