4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome collection 30 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Since this includes interviews with some of my favorite writers, I was eager to devour it. I totally love the tidbits, as well as the interviews. Now, the biggest problem with this book is the excessive amount of editorial errors. Just in my first reading of this book, I found over a dozen! And this is published by a university press! If you can overcome the distractions of these mistakes, then you can enjoy what this book is meant to be: a fascinating collection of interviews of some of the biggest names in gay men's publishing.
4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it and Phil signed it for me 8 Aug. 2016
By comconct - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I took a short story course with Phil at Harvard. This book is not the same as learning from Phil which is often the case with wearing two hats. Phil wanted to pass on his experiences and those of other gay authors and I think he does that well. He doesn't tend to get into the exotic or pretense of gay writers or men. If you are at all averse to homosexuality, this isn't for you unless you wish to educate yourself. I enjoyed it and Phil signed it for me. Thanks Phil for what you passed down in class. I learned a lot from this teacher of literature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Something (Mediocre) Inside 16 Dec. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What does one expect from a writer who teaches at Harvard and writes about authors. Good editing? Pith? Substance? While Something Inside is a worthwhile book it seems a bit slapdash and unedited as if Gambone said, "Here are these things I already have how can I make some money off of them?" and then the publisher said "He already...what's the least we can do and still make money?" For instance some of the printed interviews are composites of more than one live interview and the reader finds himself wondering why Gambone asked the same question twice. Also many of the actual interviews were given on book tours and Gambone includes references to the previous nights lectures without much in the way of explanation. There are plenty of decent answers but little in the way of revelations or useful advice. Gambone never seems to follow up on his questions and lead his authors into the depths. The interviews themselves seem to be amature and learn as you go and the lack of editing has done nothing to improve on them. All in all this seems like a project that it's participants sleepwalked through. Given the opportunity to do it over, I would pass on this one.
