Dancer from the Dance Paperback / softback

Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ALAN HOLLINGHURST'Astonishingly beautiful...

The best gay novel written by anyone of our generation' Harpers'A life changing read for me.

Describes a New York that has completely disappeared and for which I longed - stuck in closed-on-Sunday's London' Rupert EverettYoung, divinely beautiful and tired of living a lie, Anthony Malone trades life as a seemingly straight, small town lawyer for the disco-lit decadence of New York's 1970's gay scene.

Joining an unbridled world of dance parties, saunas, deserted parks and orgies - at its centre Malone befriends the flamboyant queen, Sutherland, who takes this new arrival under his preened wing. But for Malone, the endless city nights and Fire Island days, are close to burning out.

It is love that Malone is longing for, and soon he will have to set himself free. First published in 1978, Dancer from the Dance is widely considered the greatest, most exciting novel of the post-Stonewall generation.

Told with wit, eroticism and unashamed lyricism, it remains a heart-breaking love letter to New York's hedonistic past, and a testament to the brilliance of our passions as they burn brightest.
