Three Volume Set - Ambidextrous, Men Who Loved Me, A House on the ocean, A House on the Bay

£14.99

Product description

Picano's bold, funny and outrageously honest memoir of suburban 1950s childhood forever altered how we remember childhood and how we think of it today. So scandalous at the time that the book's first shipment to Great Britain was seized and burned on the London docks, Ambidextrous has since become a much-prized classic, and is now re-released as Volume One in this series of Picano's complete memoirs. 'A book worthy to stand besides those of Edmund White, Rita Mae Brown and John Reed... A vivid portrait' - The Weekly News

Men who loved Me - Volume two. The second instalment of Picano's memoirs picks up the thread of his life in the mid-1960s.

A house on the ocean, a house on the bay. Volume three. The third instalment of Picano's memoirs is a portrait of gay life on Fire Island in the 1970s.
