Moore offers a provocative defense of gay male sex culture in the 1970s as well as a jeremiad on the AIDS holocaust of the 1980s . . . As a detailed examination of the ways in which rage gives depth to art, Moore’s book has no peer in recent memory.
“Patrick Moore’s point of departure is as refreshing as it is daring . . . [This] slim polemic retains its unorthodox urgency, calling gay men to return to the sexual vanguard.”–Kai Wright, -Out
“Essential reading for anyone seeking an imaginative interpretation of recent gay history.”
“A provocative, wistful book . . . Moore’s yearning is touching and his politics refreshingly incautious-a romantic affection for the entirely unromantic.” –Austin Bunn, The Advocate
“This quietly personal book reclaims the past for young gay men and makes it useable.”–Edmund White, author of A Boy’s Own Story
