Holy Roller Disco is an always interesting, thoughtful ride through the writer's forays out into the world, in youth & later reaching escape velocity to explore other cities and personas away from his claustrophobic roots. Discovering the gay world and searching for how he fits into it leads him deeper and more comfortably into himself, just as the 70s make way for the 80s.
He ends the book there on an optimistic note of accomplishment: he managed to Come Out with a lot of integrity, if not all-out victory. I loved that the book puts brakes on the skates, shows dark & light sides, without a lot of tricks. Feels grounded & real throughout. And so many well-observed details of the culture at the time really enriches each scene.
