A Queer Reader

Patrick Higgins
New Press, 1995 - 373 頁
A Queer Reader is a rich and provocative collection of writings about male homosexuality--a gay version of Bartlett's Quotations, with authors ranging from Plato to Andy Warhol. Arranging entries chronologically and drawing on sources from the Satyricon to Gay News, from Michelangelo&squo;s sonnets to a speech in the House of Lords, from sexually explicit graffiti found in Pompeii to a Playboy interview with David Bowie, Patrick Higgins uses novels, biographies, autobiographies, histories, and ephemera to present gay history as never before.
