How relevant. #CBAM2017
It has been 8 months since the Pulse massacre in Orlando. Thought I would be ready to read this... but 20 pages in my eyes are blurry and my cheeks are drenched.
Odd, disjointed and mostly unsuccessful, but an important artifact of gay American lit (1903 - coded but obvious enough). Stoddard had friendly relations with Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, and Rudyard Kipling among others.
Keep trying to read this series but never get passed book 2 (this one). It's ok, but I don't understand the mass appeal.
Powerful, poignant, and important. At times painful, but necessary.
