The Penguin Book of Gay Short Stories edited by David Leavitt and Mark Mitchell

£15.00Price

This meaty anthology ranges from the tender unarticulated longings of D.H. Lawrence's "A Poem of Friendship" and ends with the explicit sexual interaction of two boys in a bathtub in A.M. Homes's "The Two Whiz Kids". A collection of stories that, in the worlds of its co-editor David Leavitt, 'illuminate the experience of love between men, explore the nature of homosexual identiy or investigate the kinds of relationships gay men have with each other, with their friends and with their families.' Features original stories from Larry Kramer, Edmund White, Christopher Coe, Michael Cunningham. Writers include both men and women, gay and straight, amongst them: Barbara Pym, Edna O'Brien, F.M. Forster, Christopher Isherwood, Paul Bailey, William Trevor and Edmund White.
