Flamboyant, mercurial Alistair Dodge and steadfast, cautious Roger Sansarc are second cousins who are both gay and whose lifelong friendship begins when they first meet as nine-year-old boys in 1954. At crucial moments in their personal histories their lives intersect, and each discovers his own unique - and uniquely gay- identity.

Through the lends of their complex, tumultuous, yet enduring relationship - and their involvement with the handsome model, poet and decorated Vietnam vet Matt Loguidice, whom they both love - Felice Picano chronicles and celebrates gay life and subculture over the last half of the twentieth century. From Malibu Beach in its palmist surfer days to the legendary parties at Fire Island Pines in the 1970s, from San Francisco during its gayest era to AIDS activism in Greenwich Village in the 1990s, Like People in History presents 'the heroic and funny saga of the last three decades by someone who saw everything and forgot nothing' (Edmund White).

MEDIA REVIEWS
...the gay Gone With The Wind. * EDMUND WHITE *
A stirring account of five turbulent decades of growing self-confidence, growing defiance. * MICHAEL KERRIGAN *
Picano has a fine narrative voice, and a good eye for both humour and pathos which keeps the pages turning. * GAY TIMES *
a powerful, intelligent and also very sexy eulogy to a gay male subculture lost forever. Sensational. * THUD *
