From the Publisher
“Nugent is one of the best-known unknowns of the Harlem Renaissance—widely quoted by its chroniclers and revered by people interested in black gay history. By restoring his place in history and making his work widely available for scrutiny, this book performs an invaluable service. Wirth’s introduction also provides an extraordinary tour of the gay side of the Renaissance and vivid glimpses of bohemian life in Harlem and the arts circles Nugent moved in.”—George Chauncey, author of Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World
“One of the key figures in both the creative world of the Harlem Renaissance and the complex underground world of gay culture, Bruce Nugent at last speaks here for himself.”—from the foreword, by Henry Louis Gates Jr.
