Meet the Author

Bayard Taylor (1825-1878), American author, was born at Ken-nett Square in Chester county, Pennsylvania, on the 11th of January 1825. His novel, Joseph and His Friend: A Story of Pennsylvania (1870), which he considered his most successful work despite it being re-ceived poorly by the public, recounts an intimate friendship between two men and is believed to be based on that between the poets Fitz-Green Halleck and Joseph Rodman Drake. The book is now regarded as the first American gay novel. It was published fifty-eight years be-fore British author Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness (1928).
