Apparently I don't identify strongly enough with the gay movement; much of the collection left me lukewarm.
  ari.joki | Sep 30, 2010 |
Mitchell assembles 46 pieces of fiction and nonfiction in translation by 41 writers from Europe, Asia and Latin America. As before, the authors-famous and little-known, contemporary and ancient-are not necessarily gay, but do depict a broad range of homosexual experience. Many of the names are expected and welcome: Gide, Mishima, Cocteau, Puig. Wisely, Mann's 'Death in Venice' is reprinted in its entirety (in a fine new translation by David Luke).
