Reviews

"A dramatic, often affecting account of the emergence of gay people from fear and self-hatred into self-confident participation in society."--Washington Post

"Mesmerizing . . . A compulsively readable and persistently fascinating account of such universal human conditions as fear, loathing, outrage, prejudice, heartbreak and, ultimately, hope."--Sunday Times (London)

"Fascinating and fabulous."--Vanity Fair

"A sweeping saga written with wit, insight, and poignancy."--San Francisco Chronicle
