Thanks for posting this list. For what it's worth, my favorites (all fiction) are The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Giovanni's Room, Rubyfruit Jungle and Go Tell it On the Mountain. BTW, there was one mistake. Giovanni's Room is by James Baldwin.

Gabi Clayton said...

This is a great list! Thanks, Kals.

I fixed the one Alec mentioned.

Also, I want to add one... The Wives of Marty Winters by Alec Clayton

Thank you Gabi & Alex. I appreciate the correction.

The last book listed "Always My Child" was recently offered as part of an incentive for donations to our local PBS station KCTS. I hope everyone was watching Wed night 6-11-08, (two wonderful programs.)
Anyone & Everyone: Poignant and often heartbreaking stories of families across the country who have a gay child.
About US
Inlaws and Outlaws: An award-winning documentary about the meanings of love and marriage--to straight, gay, single and married people.
