FROM THIS EPISODE

bw120223book.jpgCan a gay man and a straight man be friends? This "When Harry Met Sally" question is explored on the gay-straight axis in Edmund White's new book, Jack Holmes & His Friend (Bloomsbury USA). We discuss gay (literary) technique and the straight man's eye for detail. Is there really a difference? White tells us about erotic fiction in world culture (Japanese, French) and he gives us some spicy details from his favorite erotic novels.
