Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In assembling this anthology of 25 essays, speeches, and performance pieces, cultural critic/writer/activist Bronski rejects the notion of a single gay perspective by including work from such disparate voices as Bruce Bawer ("Notes on Stonewall"), Andrew Sullivan ("The Politics of Homosexuality"), Tony Kushner ("On Pretentiousness"), John Preston ("What You Learn After Thirty Years of S/M"), Lawrence Mass ("Musical Closets"), and Jesse Green ("The Men from the Boys"). Passionately and provocatively arguing their positions, the contributors investigate aspects of politics, sex, literature, AIDS, and identity: their points of view juxtaposed to create a lively dialog in which the participants frequently agree to disagree. Combining original pieces with previously published works drawn from sources like the New Republic, Out magazine, and Wrestling with the Angel (Riverhead: Putnam, 1995), this anthology contains writing of a uniformly high quality. The compilation of so many leading contemporary queer thinkers makes this an important addition to most public and academic collections.Jim Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.
