New or Used: $4.94
Picano's bold, funny and outrageously honest memoir of suburban 1950s childhood forever altered how we remember childhod and how we think of it today. So scandalous at the time that the book's first shipment to Great Britain was seized and burned on the London docks, AMBIDEXTROUS has since become a much-prized classic, and is now re-released as Volume One in this completely repackaged series of Picano's classic complete memoirs.

About the Author

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).

Reviews

"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
