From Publishers Weekly
Two classic short lesbian novels from the 1950s and '60s, breathy but surprisingly fresh, are reissued in this vintage volume. In the title story, writer Laura Garraway is having an affair with a married man when she first meets Ginny Adams, a self-effacing young starlet looking to establish herself on the glamorous but vicious Hollywood scene. When Laura and Ginny share their first fiery kiss, Laura realizes that she has been sleepwalking through life. Her newly awakened passions flare, but are doused when it becomes apparent that Ginny's lust for fame is stronger than her desire for Laura. Saddened yet determined not to wallow in misery, Laura leaves for New York and what she hopes will be a rich new life. Once she is in the Big Apple, refreshing experiences broaden her horizons-and introduce her to seductive new players in the game of life and love. "Love Is Where You Find It" follows the triumphs and travails of saucy New York photographer Dee Sanders. Dee's lover, the naughty, selfish Rita, engages her alternately in infuriating fights and wild lovemaking. When Rita is finally caught with another woman, Dee must forge ahead alone. Uncertain of everything, Dee travels to Paris, where she is torn between two new women and must struggle to find herself before she can trust anyone with her heart. Filled to the brim with witty dialogue and sexy scenes, Christian's novels are quite modern despite their historical setting. Tantalizing cover art, typical of '50s-era pulp fiction, is sure to attract readers, and the snappy writing will hook them.

Considering that pulp novels were meant to be morality tales, in which women who deviated from the norm were followed through their "unnatural" relationships, only to meet with a bad end or to marry properly, it's even more amazing that some authors pulled happy stories off. Paula Christian is not just a good pulp novel writer - she is a good writer.
Even when the endings are ambiguous or perhaps not even that, there's always a sense of hope and renewal...and her grasp of character voice is stellar. No character in any of her novels sounds like any other.
Because times have changed, I can see Laura and Madeline growing old, watching the world change around them, until these days when they're stepping out of their midtown NYC apartment to walk down to a GLBT rights rally, holding hands, their gray-haired heads held high.
For a chance to reach back through the generations, this book is good - for a chance to read surprisingly excellently well-written fiction, this book is great.
