Ryn McAtee
Interesting subject, but overall quite dry. I didn't care much for the editor either; he gave the impression of being quite sexist and biphobic, and I found it unnerving that the large majority of the subjects in the book were white men from Western Europe (or the U.S.). I certainly think same-sex relations existed between more than five notable men of color.

An interesting read, wide in its historical scope though decidedly and regrettably lacking in content from brown or black gay men.

Recommends it for: if you like love letters, gay history...
Shelves: gaynotpornlit
this is a really neat book with a really silly cover. it is a collection of love letters from gay couples throughout history. its quite lovely and really interesting/ affirming. most of them are loving and beautiful, some erotic, and its a cool introduction to some prominent figures in history who had some sort of gay relationships.

This book examines gay love letters throughout history. The subject is interesting, but somewhat monotonous. Altogether a interesting piece of work - and a importan one as well...
