Editorial Reviews

Lambda Book Report
“[I]f you are able to contain your cackling long enough to consider the truth underlying the jest, you will come away with an understanding of the dilemmas facing lesbians at the opening of the century. You'll find that they are not much different from the questions we grapple with today.”
The Daily Helmsman
“As an 'Almanack,' the book celebrates the uniqueness of women . . . extolling their society with separatist sentiment not violent or radical so much as mirthful and delightful.”
Voice Literary Supplement
Djuna Barnes remains a reminder of the Road Not Yet Taken—international, devious, perverse, verbally abundant, psychologically subtle.— Edmund White
Edmund White - Voice Literary Supplement
“Djuna Barnes remains a reminder of the Road Not Yet Taken—international, devious, perverse, verbally abundant, psychologically subtle.”
From the Publisher
"Barnes... spoofed the gay and not so gay times of her circle in Ladies Almanack, but if she was able to lampoon it... then she was also able to celebrate it." — Jeanette Winterson
