The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister
Anne Lister was a lesbian in the 1800s who, in private, defied the conventions of her times by living with her female lover. Anne kept a detailed account of her life. A sizeable portion was written in code, and the recent deciphering of the diaries provides an astonishing insight into the life of the woman who has been called Britain's first modern lesbian.
