    When John Rechy 'broke out' in 1963 as the bestselling author of 'City of Night,' his novel about the underworld of gay male prostitution, he became a source for provocative commentary on sexually transgressive topics for publications as varied as the New York Times, the Nation, the New York Review of Books, and the Advocate. However, Rechy has also distinguished himself as a cultural observer on matters of race, religion, politics, and literature. This volume collects more than four decades of his outspoken essays - many never before reprinted and almost none ever appearing previously in book form - along with new additional commentary by the author. 305p.

    ?[Rechy’s] tone rings absolutely true, is absolutely his own. . . . He tells the truth, and tells it with such passion that we are forced to share in the life he conveys. . . . This is a most humbling and liberating achievement.”?James BaldwinWhen 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, it has become a classic. Bold and inventive in style, Rechy is unflinching in his portrayal of one hustling ?youngman” and his search for self-knowledge within the neon-lit world of hustlers, drag queens, and the denizens of their world, as he moves from El Paso to Times Square, from Pershing Square to the French Quarter. Now including never-seen original marked galley pages and an interview with the author, Rechy’s portrait of the edges of America has lost none of its power to move and exhilarate.
