about

The Queer Sixtiesassembles an impressive group of cultural critics to go against the grain of 1960s studies, and proposes new and different ways of the last decade before the closet doors swung open. Imbued with the zeitgeist of the 60s, this playful and powerful collection rescues the persistence of the queer imaginary.

From Our Editors

Although the '60s persist in our memory as a decade of music, love and protest, people often forget that North America also stood poised on the brink of the '70s gay explosion. In The Queer Sixties, Patricia Smith brings together a collection of essays exploring the expression of gay and lesbian culture in the music and arts of the time, with queer readings of Jim Morrison, the Beatles, Myra Breckinridge and others. Evoking the tumult and excitement of this era, Smith's book presents an untold queer story in a likeable and absorbing collection.

Fourteen essays arrange in five subsections appraoch this topic through subjects ranging from pulp fiction and pop music to theater and film. Smith (UCLA) provises an introcution, and each of the essays includes substantial notes." -"Choice.""Smith collects a broad sampling of literary, film, and music criticism fora reading of the culture of the 1960s through queer-colored glasses. This eye-opening work of cultural history is recommended for larger public libraries and academic collections with gay studies or art specializations."-"Library Journal, June 15, 1999
