Perhaps the womanly intimacy that you and your lover so obviously share with your old friend threatens the fourth woman;" This along with notes to the reader really drag you out of the narrative: Why do we always seek to change the people we love?
Reform them, cure them? Sure, there's tension when two don't agree. But is it not more advisable to learn to live in peaceful disagreement than to war over who shall be brought to book, forced to "agree"? I didn't highlight the Stonewall treatment but it's played out something like "later, if we could go back and ask our characters what happened that night, here's what each of them would say" with a list of names followed by a couple of bullet points.
What's the point of reading a fictional history of gay life if you are not going to make any attempt at weaving Stonewall into the story? How gays reacted to it, that's not in this book. I've read every word so far and I just can't do it anymore. No narrative, the author talking to his characters, asking them questions: Now I want to ask Walt and Blue a comparable question: You think this is love?

Where is the comparison? Shouldn't it be "some comparable questions"? And why are you asking your characters questions at all, who's telling the story here, who's manning the ship???? I'll tell you who. After some dialogue, the author says, to whomever: The worst part of this book is that it starts out kind of well before dissolving into this unreadable jumble, but don't be fooled.
The original cover also seems to show people of colour. Who knows where they went. Nov 24, Ed rated it it was amazing Shelves: I came out as a gay man in and have certainly seen a huge attitudinal change toward gay men and lesbians in the mindset of American culture during my life.
Mordden does an impressive job describing just how bleak that world was and how hard the fight was to accomplish the changes many of us today take for granted. The author introduces us to a cast of wonderfully drawn and very diverse characters. Most notable among them: Elaine is married when we first meet her and eventually becomes a successful writer. She later moves to New York and achieves fame.
Many other fascinating characters are introduced throughout the book. Some both major and minor perish along the way; others survive to the end. There is an ever-shifting change of focus from one chapter to the next as the reader is regularly introduced to new individuals. In the hands of someone less skillful this shifting perspective might get muddled; Mordden however succeeds in making it work. He uses a good mix of humor, sadness and pathos, infusing a sense of life and realism to the story as we join him and his characters in their journeys.
The opening sentence sets the stage for giving the reader the sense that one is looking back from the present to a distant time and place. While a long book, I never found myself wishing it would end. For anyone trying to understand the sea of change that happened within the LGBT community over this time period you need look no further than here. This was clearly one of the best books I read in Sadly, I was not swept away. For a book with a title so desperate, one would expect to hear something profound!
Ella Fitzgerald - How Long Has This Been Going On? Lyrics
How long has it all been going on? What is "this" anyway? Did "this" really start only in the s? Was there nothing before? Do the characters, often contrived, have much to say about "this"? Gay history is a tricky subject, one that is often shrouded in mystery and myth. Before Stonewall, it seems, it was mostly lived underground, never documented. Larry Kramer attempted to capture Sadly, I was not swept away.
Larry Kramer attempted to capture all of gay history in his The American People: Search for My Heart: A Novel , though poorly. This novel tries to do the similarly, but in its effort to check all the relevant boxes, fails to put together a good story. Mordden seems, to quote a passage, a "[.. If only said author had listened to himself! The various chapters seem glued together, we skip 8 years from the lates to the mids but it's as if our heroes haven't lived for more than a week. There seems to be little character development, save the nominal "maturing".
Except for the hostage scene in the latter part of the book, our heroes do little that is unexpected. Our narrator often interrupts the narrative to speak in first person and contemplate the meaning of what he has written, which felt very awkward to me. Sep 15, Charles rated it it was amazing.
Well, a beautiful book, large and generous and witty, beautiful and gripping for all its passing, venial, perhaps inevitable, faults - there's a certain amount of stereotyping, which would be hard to avoid in the kind of large-scale multi-charactered historical sweep this novel goes for and, substantially, achieves, and an idealisation, which is also, in one way, the point of the novel: It's no accident that the final section is centred on a Gay Pride march, a politico-cultural event that shares these faults and is nevertheless essential.
And don't trust those who say it isn't. It's a big book, with a big heart and a lively, pungent, not always affectionate, wit, and, in its wary way, optimistic too, and forward-looking. And how perfect that the final narrative voice should be the Kid, who's there at the start and, against all odds, at the end as well.
Oh yes, may we all meet our Blue Apr 02, Jeff rated it really liked it. Mordden's sprawling epic of gay life from the s through the s was a surprisingly easy read and one I found hard to put down.

Many of the cultural touchstones Mordden's characters encounter felt exactly right: The book neither took me where I expected it would, nor lingered with me as long afterward as I'd have thought. Nonetheless, I'd recommend it highly. Sep 26, martin rated it really liked it. I'm not into gay lit for gay lit's sake. In the same way that I find some exclusively black or Asian minority writing often rather tedious when it deliberately excludes the majority. However, I really like this book and I recommend it to many friends, straight and gay.
