Title: The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister
Author: Anne Lister, Edited by Helena Whitbread
Anne Lister (1791-1840) was one of the most remarkable women of her time. Fearless and uncompromising, she was determined to live life on her own terms, both financially and sexually. She wrote extensive diaries in ‘crypthand’, which allowed her to record her life in intimate, and sometimes explicit, detail. When they were decoded by Helena Whitbread, lesbian history was changed for ever.
