Spanning over most of the past century, The Pleasures of Time is an important work that not only traces the growth of a committed gay relationship, but also charts the intellectual and artistic ferment of the 1970s and 80s. Riggins, who bases the book on diaries he has kept since the early 70s, recreates in expert sepia tones his life with Bouissac -- whether it is in the cafes of Paris, his home state of Indiana or the rural country circuses of 1960s southern Ontario.
Challenging the dictum that you can never go home, The Pleasures of Time is a must-read for those interested in gay history as well as intellectual and cultural trends of the recent past.
