Although written in 1927, it was not published until 1981; this may be due to a lack of confidence in her own writing quality, as H.D. suggested was true of Asphodel, or due to the centrality of her homosexual relationship with Gregg represented in the novel. While there is no evidence that H.D. attempted to publish the novel, it, along with another autobiographical work The Gift were being prepared for publication at the time of her death in 1961. Her literary executor, Norman Holmes Pearson, had created a typescript of HER which had been heavily revised by H.D.
In the novel, she represents herself as Hermione Gart, a woman in her twenties, shortly after failing at Bryn Mawr. It includes portraits of poet Ezra Pound (as George Lowndes) and Frances Josepha Gregg (as Fayne Rabb), with both of whom she had relationships.
