About the Author:

Craig M. Loftin is Lecturer in American Studies at California State University, Fullerton.

Review:

"[a] remarkable book ... about gay and lesbian life in the 1950s and '60s." -- Los Angeles Times

"The book's interest and value comes through the letters, which present a close-up, personal view of gay life following WWII." -- CHOICE

"The letters to ONE are terrific, providing a valuable sense of the concerns and perspectives of gay men and lesbians who might be considered rank-and-file homophiles. The book illustrates how people sometimes minimally engaged with the movement negotiated the postwar period and made a difference." -- Leila J. Rupp, author of Sapphistries: A Global History of Love between Wome
