To celebrate Malcolm Boyd's 85th birthday, and in recognition of the Lambda Literary Foundation's awarding of the Pioneer Award to him and his partner Mark Thompson for lifetime achievement, White Crane Books is proud to announce the publication of A Prophet in His Own Land: A Malcolm Boyd Reader, a compendium of five decades of his prose, poetry, prayers and interviews.
This is the first collection of Boyd's writings assembled under one cover, offering the gamut of the man's heart, mind and soul to first-time readers or long-time readers alike.
Compiled by Bo Young and Dan Vera, editors of White Crane: the Journal of Gay Wisdom & Culture, the collection begins with the first writings Boyd produced, reflecting presciently on his insider's knowledge and experience in the motion picture business and the American culture machine and span his coffeehouse years with comedian Dick Gregory and the early involvement as a Freedom Marcher with Dr. Martin Luther King.
With thirty books written and/or edited to his credit, this is the first to offer the true measure of the man.
