Book Review: "Trio," by Dorothy Baker (1943)

Review I found online:

In 1938, Dorothy Baker published "Young Man with a Horn," a novel about a white jazz musician,
which earned critical praise and eventually became a movie starring Kirk Douglas. She won
a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1942 and, the next year, published Trio, a novel whose frank
portrayal of a lesbian relationship proved too scandalous for the times; Baker and her husband
adapted the novel as a play in 1944, but it was quickly shut down because of protests.

Commentary: "The Third Sex is here to stay"
