Beschreibung

"I admire Gary Fisher's writings for their unrelenting focus on the more knotty psychological issues of gay identity, thus further problematizing the notion of a monolithic black identity. His work will help us start seeing the black gay male writer as an individual rather than as a symbol, a martyr or a mascot. Again, Eve Sedgwick surprises and astounds us with her insights into the universe. Don Belton's introduction to the world of Fisher is useful, touching, and timely."--Michele Wallace

Pressestimmen

"Such acuity, such merciless wit, such love of language, such a passion for the process of writing: Fisher's work makes me remember the first time I read Hart Crane, thinking then, as I do now, how much such a writer could have accomplished during a longer life, while marvelling at what he did accomplish, writing driven by the energy of genius, honed by mortal urgency." - Marilyn Hacker "The importance of Gary Fisher's work cannot be overstated. Presenting a singular and now lost artist, Gary in Your Pocket adds much needed insight into the forum of AIDS and sexuality. It will handily transcend any normal sense of audience or perceived notions of appeal." - Randall Kenan "I admire Gary Fisher's writings for their unrelenting focus on the more knotty psychological issues of gay identity, thus further problematizing the notion of a monolithic black identity.
