The book is an autobiography about Stub s career as a Washington politico in the 1970s and New York activist in the 1980s A journey of self discovery Strub s life also mirrored the lives of a generation of gay men who came from the sticks to the big city just as gay culture changed because of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s Truth be told I wanted to really like this book It is after all an important story that needs to be toldHowever Strub s narrative is weighed down by the constant name dropping as he manages to be everywhere that is important in gay history Like other gay authors Edmund white comes to mind this need to detail important names and places hinders the overall structure of the book resulting in poor writing that constantly moves between time and space This structure becomes repetitive and at times annoying for a reader who wants to understand Strub s journey The book needed some heavy editing
