Edge of twilight

Edge of Twilight front cover. The faces and a torso of two women are drawn in ink and coloured separately, one in pink, the other in light blue, and with the solid black of the background to depict the shadowed areas. In the foreground to the bottom right of the image, only a face is seen, lit with a hard light coming from the right. Her gaze is directed to her bottom right with a calm expression. The other figure can be seen behind her, to the left of the image, face in full profile towards the right, with her eyes closed. Her face and torso are also lit by hard light coming from the top right.

NODL Evaluation Report

"Closest group is #5.
Theme of book is hardly a subject for teenage perusal. A book about a pair of lesbians is hardly youthful entertainment. Pages and passages have not been marked as it is generally objectionable."

Cover, Front Text

Paula Christian's two most unforgettable novels of unconventional love.

Cover, Back Text

The finest since Well of Loneliness, are these two novels, written by the very best writer of lesbian fiction.
They show the way it really is: the gradual realization, the slow, sweet conversion, the frantic feelings of guilt and occasional breakdowns, the ultimate peace.
"Miss Christian has written an absorbing account of how the conflict between her heroine's love and hate for her perverse life drove her to the brink of sanity." - Dr. Harold Greenwald, Psychoanalyst and author
