Dancer from the Dance Andrew Holleran

If the Great Gatsby was gay and liked to party in Fire Island the result would be Dancer from the Dance, arguably the first modern gay American novel. It chronicles the adventures of Malone, an enigmatic and beautiful young man searching for love amid 1970s New York’s bathhouses, discos and Fire Island parties. The person he finds is Sutherland, a campy queen, and one of the most iconic characters of gay literature. Hilarious and heartbreaking.
