From Library Journal:
Collections of gay male fiction are published all the time, but it has been well over a decade since an anthology has attempted to be as truly representative as this volume, edited by well-known novelist White. Starting with Henry James and including E.M. Forster, Christopher Isherwood, William Burroughs, Tennessee Williams, and James Baldwin, among others, this anthology of short stories and novel extracts is noteworthy for its dazzling variety both in style and content. Among contemporary works there are AIDS-related stories (Andrew Holleran, Armistead Maupin, White himself), a precisely drawn narrative of the complexity of affectional ties by David Leavitt, and an excerpt from Alan Hollinghurst's frankly sexual The Swimming-Pool Library . If there is a thread throughout most of these stories, it is of displacement; as White notes in the introduction, "the gay man enjoys . . . a permanent sense of alienation from the tribe." This is for all fiction collections.
