|CRITICAL ESSAYS ON SOME DANCE TO REMEMBER
"If one can learn American history via the novels of Gore Vidal, one can learn gay American history via Some Dance to Remember.
"As a document of our times and our lives, Some Dance to Remember has no peer."
"The best gay novel since Dancer From the Dance. The Castro's Gone With the Wind."
"Jack Fritscher is acknowledged as a writer who does for gay writing what Robert Mapplethorpe did for gay photography...a knockout!"
"My God, what a book! It's all there, done with Fritscher's usual Ã©lan and verve. I wouldn't be surprised if he has written what will be looked on as that period's Great American Gay Novel. What lovely stuff!"
"Jack Fritscher didn't invent the Castro. He just made it mythical. Heady, erotic, comic...the first comprehensive fictional chronicle of the best of times."
