Product description

Review

Michael Bronski's introduction does a terrific job of placing the story in a context that is as meaningful now as it was fifty years ago.
Echo Magazine (Echo Magazine )

The best novel this reviewer has ever read on the theme of homosexuality.
The New York Times (New York Times )

At this moment in our social history, it is difficult for most American authors to write a novel about a homosexual affair without making either a tract or an apologia. Mr. Peters has done neither. Instead, he has kept resolutely in focus his great theme: the corruption and murder of innocence.
—Gore Vidal, The Saturday Review (Gore Vidal, Sat. Rev ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
