FROM THIS EPISODE

James McCourt, Camille Paglia, Alan Hollinghurst and Edmund White

James McCourt discusses the emergence of "queer identity" and gives an overview of French literary theories and their influence on multiculturalism--while Camille Paglia explains the destructive nature of such theories. Booker Prize winner Alan Hollinghurst, who writes about the gay experience, reveals that he reads very little popular gay literature. Edmund White explains how he has turned away from the aesthetic and has embraced social realism in his desire to document the AIDS crisis.
