"In1928, the novel The Well of Loneliness was banned as obscene by British courts, which ordered all copies destroyed.  Its author, Radclyffe Hall, was wealthy, middle-aged and a devout Catholic.  She was also a lesbian.  Our Three Selves is a remarkable portrait of her life and times, her writings and her two great loves: the older Mabel Batten and Lady Una Troubridge, the admiral's wife who was her constant companion for nearly thirty years.  As this acclaimed biography makes clear, the woman who broke the literary taboo against lesbianism was more complex and fascinating than anything she wrote."
