Men on Men: Best New Gay Fiction (USED)

$5.99
More Info
This extraordinary collection of gay fiction builds on the six previous volumes in the series, which is firmly established throughout the literary world as the cornerstone of America's gay literary tradition. The stories in this seventh edition are diverse, culled from the talents of established authors such as Andrew Holleran, Felice Picano, and Allen Ellenzwaig, as well as from the work of new young writers.

There are new themes in this seventh edition: more stories deal with the working class milieu and address class issues and insecurities; relationships between gay men and lesbian women are portrayed, as is the impact of the media on gay life; and more of these stories are unabashedly sexually explicit than in previous collections. Bergman's collection once again reflects the continuing vitality of gay literature and attests to its ability to confront the challenges of our times.
