The fiery and enigmatic masterpiece—one of the greatest novels of the Modernist era. One of the first noted lesbian literature novels, Nightwood was published in 1936. It was one of the first books to explore explicit themes of homosexuality between women, and is also known for its intense, gothic, and metaphysical tone. Nightwood is an undeniably unique endeavor. Perhaps because of its eccentric storyline, it became one of the most well-known LGBT novels of the 1900's. It is considered by scholars and critics today to be an extremely notable novel of the time, with The Publishing Triangle ranking it #12 on a list of the top 100 Gay/Lesbian novels of all time.

Characters: 45. Amazon rating: 3 1/2 stars. Genre: Fiction.
