The violet hour : the Violet Quill and the making of gay culture by David Bergman( )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The members of the literary circle known as the Violet Quill - Christopher Cox, Robert Ferro, Michael Grumley, Andrew Holleran, Felice Picano, Edmund White, and George Whitmore - collectively represent the aspirations and the achievement of gay writing during and after the gay liberation movement. David Bergman s social history shows how the works of these authors both reflected and criticized the values, principles, and prejudices of the culture of gay liberation. In spinning many of the most important stories gay men told of themselves in the short period between the 1969 Stonewall Riots and the devastation of the AIDS epidemic during the 1980s, the Violet Quill exerted an enormous influence on gay culture. The death toll of the AIDS epidemic, including four of the Violet Quill s seven members, has made putting such recent events into a historical context all the more important and difficult. The work of the Violet Quill, informed at every level by AIDS, expresses the suffering, grief, hope, activism, and care giving of their generation. The Violet Hour meets the urgent need for a history of the men who bore witness not only to the birth but also to the decimation of a culture

Reported sightings : art chronicles, 1957-1987 by John Ashbery( Book )

24 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the pleasures of a fine dinner is the way in which each course adds its own special flavor to the overall meal. This collection of Ashbery's pieces of art criticism, written for such publications as ARTnews, New York, and Newsweek, is much the same; the reader can dip into the book at any point and come away with a morsel (or several) that is immediately satisfying. Ashbery's writing style is spare, smooth, and informative, and although many readers may not be familiar with either the exhibits or artists he mentions, one has a sense of having learned something--a feat many critics fail to accomplish. It is obvious, too, that Ashbery both enjoys and has a sense of concern for the art world; there is criticism here, but it is of the constructive sort rare in critics these days. For anyone who enjoys good critical work."--Lib. J. review via amazon.com

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: In the first anthology to survey the full range of gay men's autobiographical writing from Walt Whitman to the present, Gay American Autobiography draws excerpts from letters, journals, oral histories, memoirs, and autobiographies to provide examples of the best life writing over the last century and a half. Volume editor David Bergman guides the reader chronologically through selected writings that give voice to every generation of gay writers since the nineteenth century, including a diverse array of American men of African, European, Jewish, Asian, and Latino heritage. Documenting a range of life experiences that encompass tattoo artists and academics, composers and drag queens, hustlers and clerks, it contains accounts of turn-of-the-century transvestites, gay rights activists, men battling AIDS, and soldiers attempting to come out in the army. Each selection provides important insight on the wide spectrum of ways gay men have defined and lived their lives, highlighting how self-awareness changes an author's experience. The volume includes an introduction by Bergman and headnotes for each of the nearly forty entries. Bringing many out-of-print and hard-to-find works to new readers, this challenging and comprehensive anthology chronicles American gay history and life struggles over the course of the past 150 years
