Catherine TexiersArt and Sex in Greenwich Village is a real who's who of the gay literary world from the mid-'70s to the mid-'90s…Picano seemingly knew and worked with everyone who was worth knowing and working with in the G.L.B.T. community. Part of what makes his memoir invaluable and enjoyable is his willingness to dish. Picano functions, in that sense, as an important historian—"a role," he writes, "I never prepared for," yet one he fulfills with remarkable thoroughness…In spite of a tendency to self-aggrandize, calling attention to his own talent as publisher, art director and writer—and as an indefatigable, irresistible and "classically proportioned" lover—Picano has assembled a tremendously entertaining collection of anecdotes and portraits that only a witness (and a good writer) could report in such vivid detail.
