About the author (2008)

New York City resident Darwin Porter, himself an unrepentant enfant terrible, moved freely, both in New York and in Key West, for many years within the entourages of this lavender trio, with personal, legal, and journalistic links to all three of its members in complicated patterns that evoke a gothic novel. Now he's written a book about it--a publishing event that reveals the competitive frenzy of a bitchy but brilliant trio whose literary legacies changed the cultural landscapes of America forever.

An experienced team of veteran travel writers, Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince have produced numerous titles for Frommer's, including best-selling guides to Italy, France, the Caribbean, England, Germany, and Portugal. Porter is also a noted Hollywood biographer, author of such recent releases as "Brando Unzipped" and "Jacko: His Rise and Fall" which documents the saga of Michael Jackson in a way that London's "Guardian" and "Observer" defined as "dangerously addictive." Four of Porter's recent biographies have been serialized in major newspapers of the U.K., including "The Sunday Times" and "The Mail on Sunday," and collectively, they've earned at least six awards from literary foundations in the U.S. Porter is also a widely respected film critic, entertainment columnist, and radio commentator, with broadcasts heard in all 50 states. Prince, formerly of "The New York Times'" Paris bureau, is president of Blood Moon Productions (www.BloodMoonProductions.com) and other media-related firms.
