W. W. Norton
»Decoy«, the concluding novella of Allan Gurganus’s »Local Souls«, was hailed as the standout of that work. Critics called it »humane, profound, hilarious, nostalgic, the literary equivalent of a bare-knuckled knockout punch«. It is a haunting lyrical portrayal of a life half-led. Set in mythical Falls, North Carolina, this mysterious and compelling tale maps the lifelong eroticized friendship between two ... Weiterlesen

No Purdy work has dazzled contemporary writers more than this haunting tale of unrequited love in an indifferent world. A seedy Depression-era boardinghouse in Chicago plays host to a game of emotional chairs in a novel initially condemned for its frank depiction of abortion, homosexuality, and life on the margins of American society. A cast of characters displaced by economic ... Weiterlesen

Grove Press
When John Rechy’s explosive first novel appeared in 1963, it marked a radical departure in fiction, and gave voice to a subculture that had never before been revealed with such acuity. It earned comparisons to Genet and Kerouac, even as Rechy was personally attacked by scandalized reviewers. Nevertheless, the book became an international bestseller, and fifty years later (2013), it ... Weiterlesen
