Thoughtful and judicious. . . . Vargo has produced COMPREHENSIVE BUT CONCISE portraits of three extraordinary men who as artists and public figures made lasting contributions to the world. His thoughtful, judicious treatment of these complex men illuminates how their remarkable achievements were not unrelated to their sexuality, even as in the case of Dag Hammarskjöld if it meant the complete suppression of his homoerotic drives. In the consideration, creativity, and public service that they provided, Glenway Wescott, Aaron Copland, and Dag Hammarskjöld demonstrate how gay men have enriched the lives of everyone.
