This novel, first published in 1950, was one of the books that launched Fawcett’s famed Gold Medal line of paperback originals….selling hundreds of thousands of copies over multiple printings throughout the decade. And yet, nothing is known about “Lillian Colter.” She doesn’t seem to have written a book before or since The Awakening of Jenny,nor did she do any interviews, leading some collectors to suspect “Lillian Colter” was a pseudonym for another author. If so, others argue, why didn’t the publisher capitalize on the massive success of this book to churn out more titles under her name? Is Lillian Colter a real author? Did she only write one bestseller, helping to launch a legendary imprint… and then disappear into obscurity? It’s a mystery.
