Circa 2000: Gay Fiction at the Millennium

Circa 2000: Gay Fiction at the Millennium Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Novel excerpts bump up against short stories; science fiction jostles beside literary fiction, punk sensibility elbows its way next to high camp and classically constructed stories. The end of the 20th century has been about the breaking down of fixed categories--of art forms, of culture, of gender, of sexual orientation-the blurring of borders to allow an infinite variety of options for identity and expression. What this anthology aims to do is introduce you to-or remind you about-a selection of writers whose intelligence, style, and heart may ease our passage into the next millennium." -From the foreword, by Terry Wolverton.

Includes writing by Bernard Cooper, Scott Heim, David Leavitt, William J. Mann, Jameson Currier, Jaime Manrique, Andy Quan, and Keith Ridgway. The companion volume to Circa 2000: Lesbian Fiction at the Millennium.
