Choma - Gentleman Jack: The Real Anne Lister

Item Description


In 1834, Anne Lister made history by celebrating and recording the first ever known marriage to another woman. This is her remarkable, true story.

Anne Lister was extraordinary. Fearless, charismatic and determined to explore her lesbian sexuality, she forged her own path in a society that had no language to define her. She was a landowner, an industrialist and a prolific diarist, whose output has secured her legacy as one of the most fascinating figures of the 19th century. Gentleman Jack: The Real Anne Lister follows Anne from her crumbling ancestral home in Yorkshire to the glittering courts of Denmark as she resolves to put past heartbreak behind her and find herself a wife. This biographical portrait introduces the real Gentleman Jack, featuring unpublished journal extracts decrypted for the first time by series creator Sally Wainwright and historian Anne Choma.

“Anne Choma’s Gentleman Jack is not just a tie-in to the TV series, but a probing and page-turning study of legendary diarist Anne Lister, full of original insights and freshly decoded material from the 1830s period of Lister’s hunt for a wife.” -
Emma Donoghue, New York Times bestselling author of Room

McDarrah - Pride: Photographs After Stonewall

Item Description


The ultimate visual chronicle of life in New York’s gay community circa 1970, by the incomparable Fred McDarrah, released in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion and World Pride Day in June 2019.

Fifty years ago this spring, the Stonewall uprising occurred in Greenwich Village—an event that marked the coming-out of New York’s gay community and a refusal by gays to accept underground status that was as important in its way as the Montgomery bus boycott was to the civil rights movement. As a direct outcome of Stonewall, gay pride marches were held in 1970 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.

The ultimate chronicler of New York’s downtown scene in that period, and therefore of pre-AIDS life in the gay community, was the late Fred W. McDarrah, senior staff photographer of the legendary Village Voice. In 1994, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Stonewall, A Cappella Books issued his lauded collection Gay Pride: Photographs from Stonewall to Today.

Working closely with the McDarrah family, and scanning from original negatives, OR Books has completely re-set the original edition of the book, now entitled Pride. The book includes a new foreword by New Yorker critic Hilton Als (who got his first job from McDarrah) and a period essay by Allen Ginsberg and Jill Johnston.
