DANCER FROM THE DANCE.
Edition: First printing.
New York: William H. Morrow, 1978. dj. Hardcover first edition - The author's first novel, a classic of gay literature. A novel set in the club and cruising scene of 1970s New York and the party scene on Fire Island, a space Holleran had immersed himself in while trying to become a writer. A book very much of its time - almost 10 years after the Stonewall Riots, but before the devastation of AIDS - this is also timeless in many ways in its description of an obsessive search for the perfect lover, the need to keep moving - to the next lover, the next party, the next look from a handsome stranger, and the next rush from a popper. 250 pp. Dust jacket by Paul Bacon. ISBN: 0-688033571.
Condition: Very good in very good dust jacket (previous owner's name on front endpaper, some shelfwear to the boards and minor wear to the dj at the ends of the spine. Original price of 9.95 still present)
