Jul 23, 2011 Ryn McAtee rated it it was ok
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.

Recommends it for: if you like love letters, gay history...
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.
