Revolting that the list didn’t include the most obvious gay New York novel: Andrew Holleran’s 1978 “Dancer From the Dance” in which New York (and Fire Island) is such a prominent character.
I envy anyone who hasn’t read this–you have such a treat ahead.
Also: Larry Kramer’s play “A Normal Heart” is included under that New York Mag’s theater category, but his “Faggots” novel makes a bitch-slap counterpoint to “Dancer From the Dance.”
Good post, Gay Recluse.
Perhaps I misinterpret Ginsberg as being a major part of this “canon?” I know David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs hail from elsewhere, but each has called NYC their home at one time or another, and have featured it in their novels. And do we leave out Jonathan Larson because he won’t get offended at not being included? Hmm…this could get messy.
The very finest ever written: William Burroughs: Naked Lunch, etc, Jean Genet :Thieves Journal , Our Lady of the Flowers
