Editorial Reviews

New York Newsday
"Welch has achieved a curious kind of cult status, his name bandied about by critics but little known among the public at large. This exquisitely designed reissue is an exhilarating literary event."
Out
"The masterpiece of British sissy literature; there couldn't be a queerer book."

Read an Excerpt

"Maybe there is no better novel in the world than Denton Welch's In Youth Is Pleasure. Just holding it in my hands, so precious, so beyond gay, so deliciously subversive, is enough to make illiteracy a worse social crime than hunger."

John Waters, excerpted from the essay, "John Waters' Five Books You Should Read to Live a Happy Life if Something is Basically the Matter with You," published in Farrar, Straus and Giroux's 2010 collection, Role Models.
