Writing as Sara Aldridge
  • The Latecomer  1974, 2009), Fay Jacobs, ed.
    This is the 35th Anniversary edition of the first book ever published by Naiad Press. This book was released in 1974 - and was one of, if not the first lesbian novel to have a happy ending and promise of a viable future for the two protagonists. In this edition, there are comments from contemporaries of author Sarah Aldridge (Anyda Marchant) like Ann Bannon,  Cris Williamson, Holly Near, Jinx Beers, Katherine  Forrest, and more, plus later novelists and activists weighing in on the history of lesbian publishing and a glimpse of what these first, hopeful books meant to these readers and writers. They include Ellen Hart, J.M. Redmann, KG MacGregor,  Kate Clinton, Radclyffe, and many more. This book also includes photographs of the author from that time period and a call to writers and readers to contribute to the lesbian/feminist publishing legacy.

    The Latecomer tells of Philippa, returning by ship from Europe, who finds her life unexpectedly changed by the woman who shares her cabin -an entertainer whose career contrasts vividly with Philippa's own existence. From Washington DC and its political intrigue to New York City, the women keep encountering one another until they recognize what their love means to them and their future.

    The 35th Anniversary Edition of The Latecomer by Sarah Aldridger is available for purchase directly through DREAMWalker Group ... (Click here to purchase)
