After Touch

Brooklyn: Out & Out Books, 1977. 2nd Printing. Octavo, publisher’s stiff printed paper wraps.

Early printing of lesbian feminist writer Jan Clausen’s debut book. A poet, fiction writer, and essayist, Clausen emerged in the 1970s with Conditions, her magazine of lesbian women’s writing with an emphasis on the experiences of working class women and women of color. Organized chronologically by seasons (winter, spring, and summer), this collection comprises poems Clausen wrote over the course of a year about her awakening sexuality, earliest romances, move to New York from Oregon, and more. Published by Brooklyn-based imprint Out & Out Books, established by Clausen alongside lesbian writers Joan Larkin and Irena Klepfis to issue short pamphlets and anthologies by lesbian feminist authors. Brochure with a short bio and bibliography on Clausen laid in, with a typed letter signed from Clausen to a prospective reviewer. Originally published in 1975, this is the second printing. Spine darkened with some toning to wraps. Very good. Item #8122
