Nightwood. Djuna Barnes
The fiery and enigmatic masterpiece—one of the greatest novels of the Modernist era. Nightwood, Djuna Barnes’ strange and sinuous tour de force, “belongs to that small class of books that somehow reflect a time or an epoch” (Times Literary Supplement).

Ladies Almanack. Djuna Barnes
Blending fiction, myth, and revisionary parody and accompanied by the author's delightful illustrations, "Ladies Almanac" is also a brilliant modernist composition and arguably the most audacious lesbian text of its time. While the book pokes fun at the wealthy expatriates who were Barnes' literary contemporaries and remains controversial today, it seems to have delighted its cast of characters, which was also the first audience. Barney herself subsidized its private publication in 1928. Fifty
