Dancer From the Dance
Author: Andrew Holleran; read by David Pittu
Now in audio for the first time! Award-winning actor and two-time Tony Award nominee David Pittu narrates one of the most influential books in gay literature.
Andrew Holleran's Dancer from the Dance defined gay life in late 1970s New York. Published in 1978, the novel captures the time post-Stonewall and pre-AIDS where sexual freedom was celebrated and the future appeared limitless.
"An astonishingly beautiful book. The best gay novel written by anyone of our generation" —Harpers
"A life changing read for me. Describes a New York that has completely disappeared and for which I longed." —Rupert Everett
Young, divinely beautiful and tired of living a lie, Anthony Malone trades life as a seemingly straight, small town lawyer for the disco-lit decadence of New York’s gay scene. An unbridled world of dance parties, saunas, deserted parks and orgies—at its center Malone befriends the flamboyant, Sutherland, who takes this new arrival under his preened wing.
But for Malone, the endless city nights and Fire Island days, are close to burning out. It is love that Malone is longing for, and soon he will have to set himself free.
"The story of youth and beauty and money and drugs. But overarchingly…the story of a new queer future" —Michael Cunningham
