An Army of Ex-lovers: My Life at the "Gay Community News" (Hardback)Amy Hoffman (author)
Hardback Published: 15/12/2007
- Not available
This is a vivid, funny portrait of the four tumultuous years a young editor spent working in the gay press. Boston's weekly "Gay Community News" was "the center of the universe" during the late 1970s, writes Amy Hoffman in this memoir of gay liberation before AIDS, before gay weddings, and before "The L Word". Provocative, informative, inspiring, and absurd, with a small circulation but a huge influence, "Gay Community News" produced a generation of leaders, writers, and friends. In addition to capturing the heady atmosphere of the times - the victories, controversies, and tragedies - Hoffman's memoir is also her personal story, written with wit and insight, of growing up in a political movement; of her deepening relationships with charismatic, talented, and sometimes utterly weird coworkers; and of trying to explain it all to her large Jewish family.
