Closets are for dandy clothes but not for gay essays or fiction. In the newest edition of Best Gay Stories, editor Steve Berman has selected confessions and stories that range from in scope from "S" - sensational - to "XL" - extra-liberating: a personal remembrance of the Stonewall Riots; a tale of awkward first love; the allure of Tadzio for not only Gustav von Aschenbach but every reader of Thomas Mann; the wisdom of Auntie Mame serving as one man's banner, among other explorations of our community's desires and heartaches and wants. The labels on these stories are designer - featuring the work of such talented and award-winning authors as Richard Bowes, G. Winston James, and Jeff Mann - the stitching strong, and the fit, you will find, is perfect.
