"Kimberly Kemp" was one pseudonym of the prolific Gilbert Fox, used exclusively for his lesbian pulp novels, of which this is an excellent and scarce example. As with many male-authored pulps of the period, the heroine pays for her sexual adventures in the conventional way: abandonment by her lovers and flamboyant self-destruction. Over the back cover copy, arresting red letters spell out the headline "APPRENTICE LESBIAN" -- an cultural artifact of the early '60s, when lesbians still learned by the apprenticeship model, professional certification having not yet been established. OCLC finds three locations, just two in the US. [STRANGE SISTERS: The Art of Lesian Pulp Fiction 1949-1969 p. 113].
