Meet Benoit Courreges, aka Bruno, a policeman in a small village in the South of France. He´s a former soldier who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life.

´´Journalist, party girl, bookworm, muse, artist: by the time she´d hit thirty, Eve Babitz had been all of these things. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing Duchamp over a chessboard and as one of Ed Ruscha´s Five 1965 Girlfriends, it turns out that Babitz was a writer with stories of her own. In Eve´s Hollywood she gives us indelible snapshots of southern California´s haute bohemians, of surpassingly lovely high school ingenues (´´people with brains went to New York and people with faces came West´´) and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of burnt-out rock stars in the Chateau Marmont. In her deceptively conversational prose, we are brought along on a ride through an LA of perpetual delight: to a joint serving the perfect taquito, to the corner of La Brea and Sunset where we make eye contact with a rollerskating hooker, through the Watts Towers, and shopping at Central Market. This ´´daughter of the wasteland´´ is here to show us that her city is no wasteland at all, but a glowing landscape, swaying with fruit trees and bougainvillea, buffeted by earthquakes and Santa Ana winds. By the end, there is little doubt that Babitz herself is proof there´s more to Hollywood than meets the eye´´--

She has a story to tell and she tells it with an almost conversational ease. Her people are neither degenerate monsters nor fragile victims of the social order. They must?and do?pay a price for thinking, feeling and loving ´differently,´ but they are courageous and true to themselves throughout.´´About Vintage Lesbian Pulp FictionIn the early 1950s new sub-genres of the vintage paperback pulp novel industry emerged?science fiction, juvenile delinquent, sleaze, and lesbian fiction, for instance?that would tantalize readers with gritty, realistic and lurid stories never seen before. Mysteries, thrillers and hardboiled detective pulps were already selling quite well. Publishers had come to realize, however, that sex would sell even more copies. In a competitive frenzy for readers, they tossed away their staid and straightforward cover images for alluring covers that frequently featured a sexy woman in some form of undress, along with a suggestive tag line that promised stories of sex and violence within the covers. Before long, books with these sensational covers had completely taken over the paperback racks and cash registers. To this day, the ´´good girl art´´ (GGA) cover art of these vintage paperback books are just as sought after as the books themselves were sixty years ago.With the birth of the lesbian-themed pulp novel, women who loved women would finally see themselves?their experiences and their lives?represented within the pages of a book. They finally had a literature they could call their own. For lesbians across the country, especially those living in small towns, these books provided a sense of community they never knew existed, a connection to women who experienced the same longings, feelings and fears as they did?the powerful knowledge that they were not alone. We are excited to make these lesbian pulp novels available in ebook format to new generations of readers.
