SummaryThis is the reissue of this classic in gay literature looking at the golden age of gay liberation. The Harrington Park Press is proud to bring this classic of gay literature to a new generation of readers. "Some Dance to Remember", out of print for over a decade, has been referred to as "The Gay Gone with the Wind", but such words do not do justice to this story. "Some Dance to Remember" uses the quintessential gay love story between a writer and a bodybuilder to capture the tone, setting, style, events and essence of the Gay Liberation Generation of the 1970's. It is a lyrical romance, a comedy, and a tragedy wrapped up in the historical context of the life and times of San Francisco, during the decade that changed the world. This historical epic seethes with sex, love and passionate characters. Lives are built, lives are destroyed. Brimming with ideas and meticulous details, this entertaining, sharp-witted and totally enthralling story chronicles an extraordinary time in an extraordinary place that shall never be forgotten. Ryan O'Hara takes the lead in this wild story of love, sex, fear, and abandon. He is a writer, coming to San Francisco during this golden age to seek a voice not only for himself but also for the burgeoning gay liberation movement galvanising the country. Enter Kick Sorensen, Ryan's "perfect man," the drop-dead beautiful blonde bodybuilder who may or may not be all he seems...
