In this deeply revealing dual biography hailed as ?brilliant,” ?remarkable,” and ?a must read” by Choice, the prizewinning historian Martin Duberman offers a fascinating view into a vital historical milieu of activism, radical ideas, and homosexuality when the gay rights movement was still in its nascent stage.

By the time their paths first crossed in the mid-1960s, Deming and McReynolds had each charted a unique and fascinating course through the politics and social worlds of the American left. Deming, a feminist, writer, and activist with an abiding belief in nonviolence, had been an out lesbian since the age of sixteen, when she fell in love with Norma Millay, her mother's best friend and the sister of Edna St. Vincent Millay. The first openly gay man to run for president of the United States on the Socialist Party ticket, McReynolds was a longtime opponent of the Vietnam War and was among the first activists to publicly burn a draft card. He was also friend to many leading figures and artists of his time, from Bayard Rustin to Allen Ginsberg.

Duberman brings the stories of this pivotal era vividly and movingly to life with a remarkable cast, including Quentin Crisp and a young Alvin Ailey. Telling a complex story, ?Duberman has made it simple and brilliantly clear” (Edmund White, author of City Boy) as he deftly weaves together the connected stories of these two compelling figures.
