From Simon & Schuster, Odd Girl Out is Elizabeth Jane Howard's latest masterpiece. Anne and Edmund Cornhill lead idyllic existence all just outside of London -- until they open their hearts to Arabella, the "lost little rich girl" whose self-indulgent mother -- once married to Edmund's father -- wants a holiday from her burdensome twenty-two-year-old daughter. But what begins as a propitious arrangement spirals into a bewildering tangle of love, loneliness, and longing.

He works by day for Smokey, which really is a rip But after work,he parties, be it whiskey, beer, or trip When he’s drunk,he staggers, you’ve never seen the sight But look at Mokey crooked, and you’ve got yourself a fight We’ve never seen him sober, we’ve never seen him straight But when he’s feeling lucky, a fifth bottle is his date He’s never had a license, he’s nutsey when he drives The cops say “Red-haired wacko, he’s gonna take some lives”

The classic 1950s love story from the Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction, and author of Odd Girl Out, I Am a Woman, Women in the Shadows, Journey to a Woman and Beebo Brinker She was the brain, the sparkle, the gay rebel of the sorority, and wonders of wonders, she chose Laura as her roommate. That was how it began... Suddenly they were alone on an island of forbidden bliss Taking a pseudonym in the interest of privacy, Bannon wrote her first book, Odd Girl Out, as a coming-of-age novel that involved love between college sorority sisters. When an editor singled-out the school-girl romance as her story's most compelling feature, the book was re-written for a lesbian pulp fiction audience. Unlike most pulps, however, Bannon broke with tradition by avoiding sensationalistic plots in favour of emotionally engaged character development. Odd Girl Out enjoyed tremendous success, inspiring other ground-breaking works, most notably Beebo Brinker. “Odd Girl Out begins the saga of Laura, off on her own at college, appallingly shy and terminally polite...Laura meets Beth, whose brash straightforwardness and friendly attitude take the younger woman by storm, leading into an equally stormy affair” Metro Times

A sensory portrait of an autistic mind From childhood, Laura James knew she was different. She struggled to cope in a world that often made no sense to her, as though her brain had its own operating system. It wasn't until she reached her forties that she found out why: Suddenly and surprisingly, she was diagnosed with autism. With a touching and searing honesty, Laura challenges everything we think we know about what it means to be autistic. Married with four children and a successful journalist, Laura examines the ways in which autism has shaped her career, her approach to motherhood, and her closest relationships. Laura's upbeat, witty writing offers new insight into the day-to-day struggles of living with autism, as her extreme attention to sensory detail -- a common aspect of her autism -- is fascinating to observe through her eyes. As Laura grapples with defining her own identity, she also looks at the unique benefits neurodiversity can bring. Lyrical and lush, Odd Girl Out shows how being different doesn't mean being less, and proves that it is never too late for any of us to find our rightful place in the world.
