Description: Book reviewers, booksellers and readers alike have praised "Boys Like us" as an essential addition to the gay bookshelf. To be published during AIDS Awareness Month and timed to coincide with National Coming Out Day (October 11), this anthology presents the work of the most impressive group of bestselling and award-winning gay writers ever to appear in a single volume. It features pieces written specifically for this collection by Samuel R. Delany, Edmund White, Alan Gurganus, Andrew Holleran, Essex Hemphill, Christopher Bram and Michael Nava, as well as rising stars Scott Heim and Norman Wong, among others.

These 28 personal essays present powerful, often stunning evocations of the primal process by which men come to terms with their desire for other men. Here are intense, sometimes unexpectedly funny tales of romance and heartbreak, repression and liberation, rape and first love -- defining moments. Arranged chronologically from Manhattan in the late 1940s to San Francisco in the early 90s, the pieces ultimately form a documentary of changing social and sexual mores in the United States during the last half-century -- a literary, biographical, sociological and historical tour de force.
