Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prior to Melvin Dixons death from AIDS in 1992 when he was on the verge of breaking out as an acclaimed novelist, his talent was compared to that of Toni Morrison and James Baldwin. In Vanishing Rooms, the author amply demonstrates his literary promise with a compelling love story of interracial sex and urban violence set in Manhattans West Village in the 1970s.

Synopsis:

Jesse Durand, a gay black dancer, suffers depression and emotional isolation when Metro, his white boyfriend, dies as a result of "gay bashing," in a tenth anniversary edition of the landmark novel about gay life in 1970s Manhattan. Reprint.

About the Author

Melvin Dixons writing appeared in the Men on Men series and Shade: Writings by Gay Men of African Descent. He taught at Columbia University.
