Praise

“[A] delight from start to finish … Paul Hallam’s enthusiasm for buggery is infectious.”—Rouge

“A clever selection and a playful one … Hallam delivers a surprising line-up of luscious lovelies … a serious and a sad book. Let it be a seductive one too.”—Weekend Telegraph

“A masterwork. Paul Hallam deepens the argument while retaining the mysteries of human interaction outside the cave of reason.”—Hilton Als

“A stunning guided tour through the real and imaginary landscapes of Sodom. A source- and thought-book.”—Jenny Diski

“An inspired, thought-provoking collection of barbaric eroticism.”—Library Journal

“Fact and fantasy merge in this innovative and abstract expression of homosexuality in the guise of Sodom … inventive, exciting and recommended.”—Pink Paper

“Hallam’s superb introductory essay details his search for Sodom in literature and in his own life, … has all the buzz of the most ardent erotic quest.”—Modern Review

“Not only a fascinating account of how one incident in scripture came to be eccessively used and abused, but also a moving memoir with a sharp political edge.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Sodom was a real place which beame abstracted into a psychosexual knot: Sex, Punishment, Death. Paul Hallam unravels that knot by making a psychogeographical journey around his adopted London, and reclaims Sodom for the people against whm it has been, and is still used.” — Jon Savage
