Staff Picks: "The best history of postwar Britain that you will ever read and/or swoon over. The “sensible footwear” of the title gives you a flavour of the lesbian humour and tenderness that permeates this very personal, defiantly queer and working-class graphic biography that draws the reader into the highs and lows, from “Glad to Be Gay” through Section 28 to Last Tango in Halifax. Sobfest guaranteed at how far we’ve come, and how far we still have to go."
