Written in 1918, this is the story of Bertram Cope, a young college student, who is befriended by Medora Philips, a wealthy older woman who tries to match him with several eligible young women. However, Bertram is emotionally attached only to his friend, Arthur Lemoyne. The novel's portrayal of their friendship is subtle but has clear overtones of sexual attraction. Largely dismissed by contemporary critics, the novel is now considered a pioneering work of both American realism and gay literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Bertram Cope's Year-Henry Blake Fuller's alternately arch and melancholy riposte to the sentimental conventions of heterosexual romance-has been waiting almost a century for its due share of apt readers. At last it has a chance of finding them, thanks to Joseph Dimuro, whose expert editing, indispensable introductory essay, and judicious choice of supplemental writings and reviews open the novel up as never before to scholarly and non-scholarly audiences alike." - Max Cavitch, University of Pennsylvania


"Joseph Dimuro has produced a critical edition of Bertram Cope's Year that is lucid and well- researched; it is a fitting study of an important novel. Adding previously unpublished material from Fuller's journals and-excitingly-from the novel itself makes this edition a delight for readers, critics, and researchers alike. This Broadview Edition shows how modern Fuller was in his treatment of gay men, and their relationships with women and each other." - Keith Gumery, Temple University
