Midlife Queer: Autobiography of a Decade, 1971-1981
Spanning the years 1971 to 1981 - years that were crucial both to the evolution of the gay rights movement and to the author's own life - Midlife Queer examines a wide range of pivotal events in the decade. Duberman moves from the internecine battles in the academic world and within the budding gay rights movement to his own heart attack, sexual and romantic adventures, and search for fulfillment via a variety of unconventional venues and alternate therapies. Peppered with gossip, wit, and tart observations of the New York theater and literary worlds, Midlife Queer stands as both an intensely personal story and the record of an era.
