Notable Authors Section:

Back in 2008, Outwords Books created a very special display featuring a selection of the Notable LGBT writers since the beginning of the 20th Century.  Having proved to be very popular, we've continued to keep the spotlight on such essential novelists as Oscar Wilde, Christopher Isherwood, Virginia Woolf, Sarah Waters and, of course, Marcel Proust.
