MEDIA REVIEWS
"City of Night put a light up to the murky gay underworld of 60s America... The author was praised for his Benzedrine-fuelled prose and his pitch-perfect ear for period slang... A modern classic." -- Boyz * . *
"John Rechy's groundbreaking novel `City of Night' lifted the lid on gay life in `60's America... it broke new ground with its depiction of the gay sexual subculture in America's cities... The author is ripe for rediscovery... uncensored for the first time." -- Time Out * . *
"A breathless, amphetamine-fuelled dash across America... Rechy's descriptive energy is instead reserved for city life's twilight world and a colourful parade of characters... his descriptive energy surpasses any queer literature label." -- New Statesman * . *
