On The George Washington Bridge Project: Crime of the Century
In which The Gay Recluse becomes increasingly obsessed with the George Washington Bridge.
Today we sent out to our millions of followers on Twitter the following tweet:
Q: What post-war (US) novel best reflects the gay experience as BELOVED reflects the Af-Am exper? Me: Holleran/DANCER FROM THE DANCE (You?)
Nobody answered! We followed it up with another tweet:
Q: Did you ever read a post-war “gay novel” in school outside of an LGBT/Queer class? (If so, which one/s)? Me: No.
Nobody answered this, either.
It has been clear to me at many points in my career that if only I would write non-gay books I might have a wider audience, I might be taken seriously in a way I wasn’t.
