Following the success of last year’s debut volume, this Best American Gay Fiction collection broadens the range of contributors, styles, and genres. Here is outstanding new work by such well-known writers as Andrew Holleran, Dale Peck, Michael Nava, and David Wojnarowicz alongside fresh talents who capture the full spectrum of gay life today — African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans. The impressive writing presented here — all drawn from works published in 1996 — reflects this diversity as well, and ranges from coming-of-age narratives to reflections on growing older, from edgy ‘zine fiction to elegant tales wrought with lapidary precision.
Unified only by their excellence, these twenty-one selections are resounding proof of yet another banner year for gay fiction.
