9780140161243: Adam's Breed (Virago Modern Classics)

This early work by Radclyffe Hall was originally published in 1926 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Adam's Breed' is a novel about a waiter that becomes disgusted with his job and goes to live in the forest as a hermit. Marguerite Radclyffe Hall was born on 12th August 1880, in Bournemouth, England. Hall's first novel The Unlit Lamp (1924) was a lengthy and grim tale that proved hard to sell. It was only published following the success of the much lighter social comedy The Forge (1924), which made the best-seller list of John O'London's Weekly. Hall is a key figure in lesbian literature for her novel The Well of Loneliness (1928). This is her only work with overt lesbian themes and tells the story of the life of a masculine lesbian named Stephen Gordon.
