Light Reading plus Sex

Edward Field’s THE MAN WHO WOULD MARRY SUSAN SONTAG and Other Intimate Portraits of the Bohemian Era recalls the gay lit scene of 20 years ago. I kept waiting for Charles Henri Ford or Kirby Congdon but they never appear; there is Auden and Sontag and the Beats and Ira Cohen and Paul Bowles plus persons peripheral or forgotten.

Diablo Cody’s CANDY GIRL A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper amused and informed me. Her half-hearted uninteresting blog links to YouTube and her appearance on David Letterman.

It would be fun if a Beat if any still survive just wrote a memoir in terms of the diseases that were spread by whom, and where.

I'd probably read that one.

Virus: Huncke spread junkieism. I just learned that a poet of that generation whom I know and greatly admire has been addicted to heroin forever. I never suspected.
