Excellent and highly readable,
This review is from: Queer London: Perils and Pleasures in the Sexual Metropolis, 1918-1957 (Chicago Series on Sexuality, History, and Society) (Hardcover)
This is a thoroughly well researched academic book but you immediately notice how easy it is to read with a perfect balance between precise analysis and accessibility. The book uses numerous personal stories and examples to illustrate the various points and really draws you into the complex lives that were necessary for its subjects and the shadowy world they were forced to inhabit. This book will interest anyone who has even a passing interest in the subject and is well worth reading. It even looks good on your coffee table.
