Change was everywhere in early 1980s London – new sights, sounds and the hopes of a generation determined not just to subvert, but to claim the future.
Lee Habens arrived fresh from small town grief and seeking change of her own. She hoped to be part of a very private revolution – to become the woman born within.
Lee would need to find ways to support herself and to fund a complex and terrifying journey she could yet only loosely comprehend. She would need to walk the delicate lines between the ‘straight’ world and places where genders pass and blur. And she would need to do it all unnoticed – at least until able and equipped to finally cross the threshold to the life she instinctively craved.
There would be new challenges, old secrets and relationships of unimaginable promise – for if a life could be created, perhaps even love could stand a chance.
From West London to Brighton, Bristol and the south of Spain, Interloper echoes a time of optimism and flamboyance; fear and danger. The prize is peace and a place to call home. For the Interloper herself, to finally belong.
