Autobiography of a Decade, 19711981
Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiographies
With searing self-appraisal and a keen sense of the world around him, acclaimed writer and gay activist Martin Duberman examines a wide range of issues in his personal and professional life and in the politics of the time from 1971 to 1981from the early years of gay liberation to the first public reports of AIDS.
Duberman moves from the internecine battles in the academic world and within the budding gay rights movement to his own heart attack, sexual and romantic adventures, and search for fulfillment through new therapies and the world of theater. Peppered with gossip, wit, and tart observations of the New York theater and literary worlds, Midlife Queer stands as both a fascinating memoir and a record of an era.
Martin Duberman is distinguished professor of history at Lehman College and the Graduate School of the City University of New York. He is the author of seventeen books including the widely acclaimed Cures; Stonewall; and Paul Robeson. Duberman is the founder and the first director (19861996) of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the CUNY Graduate School, the country's first such research program.
