Eminent Outlaws: The Gay Writers Who Changed America by Christopher Bram


Recommended Posts

Christopher Bram, whose novel, The Father of Frankenstein, became the movie, Gods and Monsters, has written an account of the great post-WWII American gay authors (some born elsewhere). The story of their struggles, their relationships with one another, their feuds, and their foibles is told by a writer who knew a few of them and knew of them all. The prose is lively and delightful. The "Outlaws" include Vidal, Capote, Baldwin, Isherwood, Wilson, Kramer, Maupin, White, Kushner, and others. If you enjoy literary history from an insider's perspective, try this one.
