The entire time I was reading this I was appalled, oddly fascinated and deeply sad The only reason I can see the value of this still being available at least as it is in ebook format is that it serves as an unwelcome, but very necessary, reminder of just how bad attitudes toward gays and lesbians were in the not so far away past It is not that they cannot still be bad they can, of course What makes it so different than today, though, is that these attitudes were just so incredibly warped in thei [...]

This book was really hard to read I thought it was going to be much an account of gay life in New York in the 50s and was very interested in hearing first hand non fictional accounts of that time This book did have some of that, and when it did it was fascinating But what it also had was some very serious discussions on the perversity and curability of gay women It was quite a shock at how negative a view a lesbian in the 50s would have of what why and how of lesbians being the way they were Re [...]

I found this book so offensive that as soon as I finished reading it, I called up a friend to rant I realize that it, and the author s feelings, are a product of its time, but I can t believe that she ever thought that lesbians are drawn to women because their emotional maturity is stunted Just euuuugh.

This strange little book has quite a split personality In it, Ann Aldrich one of the many noms de plume of the prolific Marijane Meaker purports to set the record straight, as it were, by educating regular people on the life and personality of the lesbian Meaker drew on social science that was in vogue at the time the book was published in 1955 , such as Freudian psychoanalytic theories and the sexuality studies of Kinsey She also drew, as she freely acknowledges throughout the book, on her own [...]

Although I can understand why this is such an important work, it really is a hard pill to swallow We Walk Alone is really nothing like I thought it would beI expected a slightly pulpy guide to lesbian life in New York, an unveiling of secrets, a gritty glimpse many didn t get until decades later Instead, Aldrich real name Marijane Meaker, also wrote crime novels under the name Vin Packer wrote a confusing little book trying to figure out why lesbians are lesbians, what is wrong with them, and ho [...]

The worthy bits, for the modern reader, are the vignettes She describes lesbian life in the early 1950s in very personal detail She is classist about it, sometimes repulsively so, but her observations are still worth reading About half the book is an explanation of the current medicine, which in 1955 amounted to Freud your Mom Did Meaker really believe about herself what she was writing In any case, it s a good book I recommend it, as a historical artifact.

This book is interesting from a historical perspective, and almost campy at moments A fun read if you can take it for what it is and where it s from But beware there is pretty lengthy discussion of pathologizing psychobabble almost throughout.


Tayler

Clearly written and well thought through Odd how this book still seems modern, reads as if it is almost a new release today
