Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Dancer from the Dance: A Novel (Plume Contemporary Fiction) (Taschenbuch)
I'd heard about Dancer from the Dance almost from the moment of my coming out. For 19 years I resisted; there just isn't much gay-themed literature that's any good. Dancer is the glorious exception. Beautifully written, and as relevant to the gay-male experience today as it was in the late 70s. More fascinating than the novel's central figure -- Malone, every man's favorite circuit boy -- is the nameless narrator, whom we scarcely come to know. This was an inspired device by Holleran, who recognizes the prospect that any one of us might lose our own identities in the pursuit and adoration of the beautiful Malones.
