Moments in Gay History

Jun 13, 2019

As part of our collaboration with 20 Summers we bring you authors Rebecca Makkai and Christopher Castellani in recorded conversation about their latest novels, both capturing pivotal moments in gay history. Makkai’s novel The Great Believers is set during the 1980’s AIDS epidemic. Castellani’s historical novel Leading Man is set in the 1950’ and inspired by the romance between Tennessee Williams and Frank Merlo.
