Dancer from the Dance: A Novel
One of the most important works of gay literature, this haunting, brilliant novel is a seriocomic remembrance of things past -- and still poignantly present. It depicts the adventures of Malone, a beautiful young man searching for love amid New York's emerging gay scene. From Manhattan's Everard Baths and after-hours discos to Fire Island's deserted parks and lavish orgies, Malone looks high and low for meaningful companionship. The person he finds is Sutherland, a campy quintessential queen -- and one of the most memorable literary creations of contemporary fiction. Hilarious, witty, and ultimately heartbreaking, Dancer from the Dance is truthful, provocative, outrageous fiction told in a voice as close to laughter as to tears.

Review: Dancer from the DanceUser Review - Shannon Yarbrough - Goodreads
This is a reread for me. I read it first while in college, and it was actually the very first book I ever read considered gay fiction. I sought it out today because I wanted to look at the cover and my inner self decided it wanted to read it again. Full review to follow... Read full review
