Under the Rainbow is one of the few genuine gay classics, the moving account of a life that has bridged the gap between the world before Stonewall and the world after. From growing up gay in the fifties to his involvement in the early gay rights movement, Kantrowitz writes about his life in all its aspects with wit, candor, intelligence, and great deal of good feeling. Revised and with a new afterword, this will remain an essential book for generations to come.
"[Kantrowitz] has restored to us one of the best accounts of the years immediately after Stonewall. 'Under the Rainbow' has an immediacy and a poignancy--at least, a different kind of poignancy--that more retrospective autobiographies and epic novels can't match."
Glen Johnson, Lambda Book Report, September 1996Review:
"His descriptions of his lonely childhood, psychoanalysis, drug use and promiscuity reflect the experiences of many gay men who came of age in the '60s, believing in the freedom the era seemed to promise."
Erika Taylor, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 09/01/1996
