"Growing up in the 1940s and 1950s when the only label for homosexuality was 'pervert' and gay pride meant prison, Dennis Hinkle has written a compelling and powerful memoir of passion denied and love unclaimed. This book is not only for those gay men who will recognize themselves on every page but for any of us who have felt different, fearful that friends and families will find us wanting, afraid to be fully ourselves with another."
"The book gives us a dramatic picture of the emotional anguish that can come to people as they try to make sense of their needs and desires in a world that does not value them. Perhaps more importantly, it is a moving tribute to the joy and triumph that comes with an honest acceptance of one's self."
"Educators, parents, and therapists, indeed every thoughtful reader will find in this book new depths of tolerance and hopefully more creative and committed ways of appreciating and embracing 'difference' as a blessing rather than a burden."
