A study of gay male fiction written between 1945 and 1995. It features close readings of works by White, Isherwood, Andrew Holleran, Gore Vidal, Larry Kramer, and many more. Woodhouse is egotistical enough to see in literary history ""my own roughly simultaneous history writ large"", and repeatedly exposes himself in this analysis of the history and nature of America's gay fiction.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Woodhouse is a first-rate literary critic of the old school -- of the sort I feared had become extinct from breathing the exhaust fumes of poststructuralism. In fact, he reminds me a bit of Edmund Wilson (I do not make this comparison lightly) in his shrewd book sense and his sparkling prose style.--John W. Crowley, editor of Genteel Pagan: The Double Life of Charles Warren Stoddard


One of those rare works of literary criticism that is itself a work of literature.--David Bergman, author of Gaiety Transfigured: Gay Self-Representation in American Literature
