A groundbreaking book about a groundbreaking college class. Students all over America, including from Harvard, were graduating into the "Summer of Love" when everything began to change.I'm proud to have worked as Toby Marotta's assistant on this book, editing his extensive taped interviews and conversations with his Harvard classmates into literate text. The book was done in the late 70s, so ten years after graduation. The course of cultural transformation -- especially for gay men -- is apparent in that decade. This book is a wonderful statement about the maturation of gay consciousness in the period after Stonewall. And, of course, it was iconoclastic when it first came out: Who knew there were homosexuals at Harvard? This book helped wake up American culture (and Harvard culture) to the reality of gay consciousness and challenged stereotypes.And the guys Toby interviewed were really appealing men. It's neat to see into their lives.
