Conversations with Gay Fiction Writers
Edited by Philip Gambone
A collective portrait of today's most influential gay writers
In the last twenty years, gay literature has earned a place at the American and British literary tables, spawning its own constellation of important writers and winning a dedicated audience. No one, though, until Philip Gambone, has attempted to offer a collective portrait of our most important gay fiction writers. This selection of interviews attempts just that and is notable both for the depth of Gambone's probing conversations and for the sheer range of important authors included: Allen Barnett, Christopher Bram, Peter Cameron, Bernard Cooper, Dennis Cooper, Michael Cunningham, Brad Gooch, Joseph Hansen, Scott Heim, Andrew Holleran, Alan Hollinghurst, Brian Keith Jackson, Randall Kenan, David Leavitt, Michael Lowenthal, Paul Monette, Michael Nava, David Plante, John Preston, Lev Raphael and Edmund White
Philip Gambone is an award-winning essayist, journalist, and fiction writer living in Boston. He teaches writing at Harvard University. His previous work includes a book of stories, The Language We Use Up Here. He is the author of a novel, Beijing, also published by the Press. Robert Giard contributed photos of sixteen of the writers interviewed.
