Spring Fire by Vin Packer

Her silky black hair. Her low-cut gown. Her sparkling sorority pin. It's autumn rush in the Tri Epsilon house, and the new pledge, Susan Mitchell—"Mitch" to her friends—trembles as the fastest girl on campus, the lovely Leda Taylor, crosses the room toward her for a dance. Will Leda corrupt Mitch? Or will the strong and silent Mitch draw the queen of Tri Ep into the forbidden world of Lesbian Love? Spring Fire was the first lesbian paperback novel and sold an amazing 1.5 million copies when it first appeared in 1952. It launched an entire genre of lesbian novels, as well as the writing career of Vin Packer, one of the pseudonyms of prolific author Marijane Meaker, whose acclaimed memoir, Highsmith: A Romance of the 1950s, told the story of her own forbidden love. Now available after forty years out of print, Spring Fire is both a vital part of lesbian history and a steamy page-turner.

one of the pluses of Spring Fire is the depiction of sorority life. Here we see for the first time the inside workings of pledge parties, rush week, blackballing, all of it. The love story is very tame for today but it makes you think how sensational it must have been in the 50's. I am amazed that Packer then went on to write solely crime stories. Quite a change. I do think Spring Fire is a delightful read about the 50's and being gay. Did they even use that word then? I don't think so.
