My 1980’s and Other Essays, Wayne Koestenbaum, 2013

A totally different reading experience with some very far out post-modern, difficult pieces interspersed with some cultural criticism that I could relate to.  A bit too much gay (the essays entitled The Nude Cary Grant and Fag Limbo may tell it all!), but some wonderful observations on Walter Benjamin, Susan Sontag, and Roland Barthes, and the poetry of Crane, Schuyler, O’Hara, and Ashbery.
