matthewgallaway asked: Off the top of my head/gay protagonists: Alan Hollinghurst is always a great choice, although lately I've been obsessed with this other British guy Adam Mars-Jones, whose books Pilcrow and Cedilla are both amazing. Anything by Jeanette Winterson. City of Night by John Rechy -- he basically invents a new language in the 1950s. Dancer from the Dance by Andrew Holleran is to me the "Beloved" of the U.S. post-war gay experience, and Zipper Mouth by Laurie Weeks is fucking hilarious and beautiful.
Thanks, guy! If you, reader, would like to read a book inspired by those books listed above, try Gallaway’s The Metropolis Case.
