HIGHLY ENTERTAINING 16. Februar 2014
Von Parfumman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have never understood why people who object to a homosexual lifestyle will read a book on the subject and then condemn it. Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and Gore Vidal ... surely most readers know what will likely be covered in this book. With that said, I think this is a most interesting and informative read. I love the writings of all three authors, and this selection highlights what happened in their private lives to shape and influence their literary output. PINK TRIANGLE is filled with very detailed and amusing anecdotes about such celebrities as Tallulah Bankhead, Jackie Kennedy, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, James Dean, Thornton Wilder, Leonard Bernstein, Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and countless others. I was particularly entertained by the stories of Marlon Brando and Anna Magnani when they filmed "The Fugitive Kind" and Katharine Hepburn on the set of "Suddenly, Last Summer." I have previously read individual biographies of Williams, Vidal, and Capote, but there is much new information in this book.

Typical Darwin Porter 7. März 2014
Von Quarter Irish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone who dives into a 700-page book by Darwin Porter should know what to expect: a massive jumbled tsunami of horribly written information, everything but the kitchen sink. However, I adore reading his books, they're incredibly entertaining, and it's fun observing how ridiculous some of the conversations that he invents sound. Some factual errors, but his research is pretty good. I just wish he could write something that a good editor could whack with a machete and put it into a more coherent shape.

With Darwin Porter, America has gotten the Seutonius it deserves 2. Mai 2014
Von F. P. Kovacs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
At first I found Porter's biographies nonsense, gossipy trivia and hearsay with no value whatever. I now disagree with my earlier assessment. Having gotten on his frequency, I now consider him an immensely valuable cultural historian of a particular sort.

With this book, Darwin Porter has pinned down 20th century trashcult for the ages. The three subjects were all compulsive in their desire for sex, fame and wealth (no particular order) and like obsessives of all ages they self-destructed with ghastly results. Did they get what they wanted?

Whether they did or no, American culture has gotten the trinitarian Mount Rushmore it's been slumming for since the gossip rags were invented. Now it's down to who got who, when, how, and the question Why no longer matters. Being famous and having the Name is all it's come down to, and at long last all that's left.

A thoughtful biographer could have crafted a trio of Citizen Kanes and a lot of incisive commentary; Porter knows better. The utter artlessness of the delivery suits the material so well it's almost mesmerizing. In Vidal and Capote in particular, it's almost pointless to note that their own self-love smothered any chance of an objective assessment from the start. Williams alone retains some complexity; he was a true giant and in some ways still awaits a proper treatment from anyone. Even so, as a wedge to better view the other two, Williams belongs in this book as a kind of rudder.

For this reviewer, a happily married old dude with no dog in the "orientation" fight, I can honestly say that even with all the bloody details the homosexuality barely registers anymore. The peculiar genius Porter brings to this book is that the flavor of the sex matters less then the almost epic piggishness the characters played their roles. Had this book been about a playboy and armies of females it would not have changed the oder by one iota.

We get the elites we deserve, and Porter is our Suetonius, taking a close look at what Do What Thou Wilt has done for the land of "greed is good". It is not pretty but historians a century from now will have a treasure trove to work with.

Undeniably Dishy 23. April 2014
Von G.I Gurdjieff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
First thing about the author. Darwin Porter writes some of the most interesting gaycentric stuff out there. Granted that he could use a really good editor to clean up his narrative, there is something delicious in regard to the way he fleshes out his subjects. I just don't know how much of what he writes is true and really don't much care. I approach his books as really interesting fact based fiction.
In Pink Triangle, Porter runs three strands of biographic information on Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, and Tennessee Williams. All were extremely gifted writers and famous in their own right. All have been the subjects of separate books that cover their lives and careers and their shared homosexuality. What makes this book more interesting than others is that it is anecdote driven and loaded with dialogue that I assume is probably fictional unless Porter had transformed himself into a literal fly on the wall.
Not unlike Porter's other journeys into fact based fiction, this book borrows from other sources but has Porter's distinctive flourishes that are so darned interesting it makes it difficult to put this book down. His subjects couldn't be more interesting and were icons in life and now in death.
Unless you are offended or uncomfortable with gay topics, this is really an interesting book that blurs the line between fact and suspected fiction. This is a solid 4* book in need of a professional editor.

This is an excellent book based on Camp gossip. Each chapter is just dishy. I highly support and recommend it.
