Crashing Cathedrals by Tom Cardamone
"“Do books find you when you need them the most?” Sarah Schulman mulls. Donald Wiese reveals: “Since I didn’t know anyone who could show me a world of gay people I knew existed out there, I turned instead to literature for guidance. (Yes, I know, h..." Read more of this review »

Pacific Rimming by Tom Cardamone
"This was at the least really interesting but it runs into two problems that a lot of realistic fiction has, especially the Updike/New Yorker variety: (1) it doesn't have an ending, it just sort of stops, and (2) I can't help but feel, for all the..." Read more of this review »

“Lost love weighs heavier than lost time.”
Tom Cardamone, The Lost Library: Gay Fiction Rediscovered

“He craved sex and chocolate. Chocolate was his heroin. Men were his needle.”
Tom Cardamone, Night Sweats

“Imagine how much more frightening death must be to an immortal?”
Tom Cardamone, Pumpkin Teeth

“Sometimes we need fellow radicals to remind us of what we, as writers, have set out to proclaim.”
Michael Graves, The Lost Library: Gay Fiction Rediscovered

“I like to read great books not because I’m hoping to imitate them but because I want to remind myself how good you have to be to be any good at all. We won’t be read in the light of other writers in our zip code or decade but as we compare to Proust, Joyce, and Nabokov. History has set the bar very high, and one must jump over it, not do the limbo under it.”
Edmund White, The Unpunished Vice: A Life of Reading
