Prion’s internationally bestselling Sex Lives series presents lighthearted accounts of the sexual escapades of major figures in history, politics, religion, the arts, and film. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. Over the years, some gay men, such as Oscar Wilde, have suffered for their sexuality. Others, like Quentin Crisp, have made a career out of it. Noel Coward was overtly camp, and J. Edgar Hoover hid his sexuality while persecuting other homosexuals. Sex Lives of the Famous Gays contains a richly diverse collection of gay lives—from the noble and heroic to the outrageous and compellingly weird. Its cast includes poets, playwrights, novelists, soldiers, dancers, film directors, actors, and entertainers.
