“This fascinating book operates on the simple, fundamental premise that homosexuality inhabits a social place between public and private, and that, consequently, it serves as a sort of deep structure of knowledge, narrative, and identity. In five compelling and provocative chapters, Schehr works through the ramifications of his theory, uncovering unexpected alliances between and among his subjects, in the process giving us original, challenging, and potentially polemical insights.”—Thomas DiPiero, University of Rochester
