Between Men: Original Fiction by Today's Best Gay Writers
Running Press, 2007 - Fiction - 334 pages
From the Publisher: Original fiction by Edmund White, Andrew Holleran, James McCourt, Dale Peck, Bruce Benderson, and other leading gay authors-collected and introduced by Lambda Literary Award-winning editor Richard Canning. Certain to become a cornerstone of the gay literary tradition, Between Men brings together new and unpublished stories from eighteen of today's best gay writers. Edmund White delves into nineteenth-century Manhatten, re-imagining an encounter between author Stephen Crane and "The Painted Boy." Andrew Holleran brilliantly portrays how youth, beauty, and time encroach on four vacationing gay men. James McCourt releases an unforgettable new outtake from the legendary correspondence of Mawrdew Czgowchwz. And Dale Peck enters the "Garden of the Lost and Found." From Kevin Killian's "Greensleeves" to Wayne Koestenbaum's "Diary of a Quack," and from Robert Gluck's "Bi-Sexual Pussy Boy" to John Weir's "Neo-Realism at the Infiniplex," Between Men is an essential snapshot of gay fiction as it stands today. Like the lives it describes, it is rich, diverse, unexpectedly wise, often funny, and sometimes a little dangerous.

Not as good as the follow up anthology, "Between Men 2". Skip this one and go straight to #2.
