Mapplethorpe : assault with a deadly camera : a pop culture memoir, an outlaw reminiscence by Jack Fritscher( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mapplethorpe repeatedly asked Fritscher to write about him. Fritscher responded with features and fiction depicting the photographer. When Fritscher wrote the novel Some Dance to Remember, he dedicated it to Mapplethorpe, who read it in progress. The book was published to wide acclaim after Mapplethorpe's death in 1989. The New Republic named the book a Classic on a peer with Gore Vidal's The City and the Pillar and James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room. Mapplethorpe: Assault with a Deadly Camera is a vivid, compelling story of a specific group at a specific time in a specific place, living in a Golden Age before AIDS and its lost civilization beneath a viral sea

Some dance to remember by Jack Fritscher( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ... epic of San Francisco's Castro and Folsom streets seethes with sex, drugs, panic, and passionate characters: a gay writer, a drop-dead gorgeous bodybuilder, a cabaret singer, a Vietnam War vet, a Hollywood bitch, and a rough-trade porn mogul. Narrator Magnus Bishop channels Ryan O'Hara, a writer pioneering a tell-all voice in the emerging subculture of gay magazines. When Ryan meets Quentin Crisp's 'perfect man' in Kick Sorenson, lust and politics collide. Steroids rule Castro Street. Gender fascism divides queens versus clones into gay civil war over correct queer identity. White assassinates Milk. Gay rioters burn City Hall. Ryan, romancing the morphing trickster Kick, cruises through nightclubs, ecstatic sex, and leather rituals in legendary bathhouses. Sprung from Isherwood's Cabaret, 1970s San Francisco mirrored 1930s Berlin: decadent, dazzling, diverse, doomed. It's all here. A city. A murder. A plague. A lost civilization. A love story."--Page 4 of cover
