Overview

The author of the acclaimed Gay Fiction Speaks brings us new interviews with twelve prominent gay writers who have emerged in the last decade. Hear Us Out demonstrates how in recent decades the canon of gay fiction has developed, diversified, and expanded its audience into the mainstream. Readers will recognize names like Michael Cunningham, whose Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Hours inspired the hit movie; and others like Christopher Bram, Bernard Cooper, Stephen McCauley, and Matthew Stadler. These accounts explore the vicissitudes of writing on gay male themes in fiction over the last thirty years—prejudices of the literary marketplace; social and political questions; the impact of AIDS; commonalities between gay male and lesbian fiction . . . and even some delectable bits of gossip.

Editorial Reviews

Lambda Book Report - David McConnell

Hear Us Out is going to become, like Richard Canning's previous book of interviews, Gay Fiction Speaks, a standard reference for scholars. That's an appropriately exalted, climate-controlled fate for a wonderful book.... Canning has a wonderful knack for this work.

The Gay and Lesbian Review - Christopher Hennessy

Canning offers up more of the meaty, critically rich interviews
