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. * TimeOut *
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 *
Rechy's tone rings absolutely true, is absolutely his own, and he has the kind of discipline which allows him a rare and beautiful recklessness. tells the truth, and tells it with such passion that we are forced to share in the life he conveys. This is a most humbling and liberating achievement. * James Baldwin *
One of the major books to be published since World War II. * Washington Post *
