Synopsis:

Ralph is a breezy East Villager, politically aware but only half committed, who is swept up in an affair with Bill, a young Republican journalist who "just happens" to be gay. Ralph's qualms about dating a man whose values clash with his own turn to disgust when Bill publishes a scathing tell-all book that attacks several prominent women in Washington. Illuminating the fine line between the personal and the public, Gossip brings wry insights and provocative questions to current political and social controversies. Bram's deft humor and subtle grasp of human character enrich a novel that is at once entertaining, surprising, and wholly original. ý Bram is one of America's most accomplished gay novelists. He has been featured in cover stories in Lambda Book Report and Christopher Street. ý The film of Father of Frankenstein starring Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser is about to go into production and should raise Bram's profile considerably.


Review:

"Bram...makes a bold, imaginative leap with considerable skill in this new tale, taking on gay involvement in the '90s Republican comeback in Washington....[A] closely wrought psychological portrait of both a decent man and the sharply divided gay world he inhabits."

Kirkus, 02/01/1997

Review:

"In 'Gossip', [Bram] presents the reader with just the right blend of moral complexities, woven into a plot with a high entertainment quotient. The three days I spent with 'Gossip' were the high point of my month. Every moment I kept wishing I could get away from my own disappointingly unscandalous life and get back to the tantalizing world of his novel....If only more novelists approached their craft with the imagination and skill of Christopher Bram, literature might well achieve what it needs to survive in a world of cyberspace and 'Nightline'--a much larger share of the scandal market."

Robert Plunket, New York Times Book Review, 06/01/1997
