Young, divinely beautiful and tired of living a lie, Anthony Malone trades life as a seemingly straight, small town lawyer for the disco-lit decadence of New York's 1970's gay scene.

Joining an unbridled world of dance parties, saunas, deserted parks and orgies - at its centre Malone befriends the flamboyant queen, Sutherland, who takes this new arrival under his preened wing. But for Malone, the endless city nights and Fire Island days, are close to burning out.

It is love that Malone is longing for, and soon he will have to set himself free. First published in 1978, Dancer from the Dance is widely considered the greatest, most exciting novel of the post-Stonewall generation.

Told with wit, eroticism and unashamed lyricism, it remains a heart-breaking love letter to New York's hedonistic past, and a testament to the brilliance of our passions as they burn brightest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Dance from the Dance accomplished for the 1970’s what The Great Gatsby achieved for the 1920’s — the glamorization of a decade and a culture - Edmund White

A life changing read for me. Describes a New York that has completely disappeared and for which I longed - stuck in closed-on-Sunday's London - Rupert Everett

An astonishingly beautiful book. The best gay novel written by anyone of our generation - Harper's

The first gay novel everybody read... It’s the story of youth and beauty and money and drugs. But overarchingly, it’s the story of a new queer future - Michael Cunningham, New York Times Magazine

Beautiful, hilarious, heart-breaking and tender - Andrew McMillan
