About the Author

New York City resident Darwin Porter, himself an unrepentant enfant terrible, moved freely, both in New York and in Key West, for many years within the entourages of this lavender trio, with personal, legal, and journalistic links to all three of its members in complicated patterns that evoke a gothic novel. Now he’s written a book about it--a publishing event that reveals the competitive frenzy of a bitchy but brilliant trio whose literary legacies changed the cultural landscapes of America forever.
