Felice Picano's first book was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award. Since then he has published twenty volumes of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and memoirs. Considered a founder of modern gay literature along with the other members of the Violet Quill Club, Picano also founded two of the earliest gay publishing companies in the U.S.: the SeaHorse Press and Gay Presses. His novels include The Lure, Looking Glass Lives and Like People in History (all available from Turnaround).
"A stunning tale." - San Francisco Examiner "Compelling and engrossing, it will conjure up memories of everyone's adolescence, straight or gay." - Out Magazine "A book worthy to stand besides those of Edmund White, Rita Mae Brown and John Reed... A vivid portrait" - The Weekly News "Picano deftly evokes those placid Eisenhower years of bicycles, boners and book reports. He makes us remember what it feels like to be a child. It really glows." - The Advocate
