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.
-Publishers Weekly

“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.”
-Library Journal

“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
