The Lola film is a distinct subgenre of the woman's film in which woman's claim to pleasure is entertained without recourse to the figure of the femme fatale. This book examines Lola as a specific and enduring aspect of the "new woman": woman's forthright claim to pleasure on her own terms, liberated from the usual constraints of sex and gender.
Simon Richter is Professor in the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Pennsylvania, USA.
