Summer readin’

gay pulp fictionSince the start of summer each Tuesday I have been posting book covers from gay pulp fiction novels published in the 1950s and 1960s. This is possibly my favorite book title.

Published by Anchor Publications in 1965 this gay pulp fiction novel is listed as adult fiction but it looks fairly tame as compared to the other novels I’ve been publishing each Tuesday afternoon.

gay pulp fictionThis book, published by Late Hour Library in 1968 would’ve been quite the read in its day. I can only imagine the looks one would’ve received reading this at the beach back in the late 1960s

20 Summers Series presents Michael Cunningham and Daniel Mendelsohn

Ptown, Hawthorne BarnIn a little more than a month Michael Cunningham, winner of numerous prizes including a Pulitzer, and the internationally best-selling essayist, critic, and translator Daniel Mendelsohn will discuss how writers turn to literature to broaden their own horizons.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get down to Provincetown for this discussion but I am always fascinated by how artists get their inspiration and channel it into a creative output. I’ve been a fan of Cunningham’s work and think this would be an intriguing discussion to hear first hand in such an intimate setting.
