Like People in History

by Felice Picano

Don't be put off by the size of this book. Once you've got into it, it's a fascinating insight into gay life and subculture over the last half of the twentieth century. Told through the stories of two cousins, whose lives regularly inter link over the years, there is a very vivid sense of place, time and people you care about.


Wally checked his widow's peak in the fish-eye corner mirror, then slid me against one wall and began to tongue-kiss me as though he were trying to ingest both of my tonsils simultaneously. This, of course, was intended to shut me up and to incite any purple-haired woman with a Lhasa apso unfortunate to have rung for the elevator.
