About this title

Synopsis:

Boze Hadleigh provides a unique compilation of celebrity quotes from those who are out, those who are outing others, those who are straight, and those who remain in concealment.

Review:

"If straight women can be pro-lesbian, why can't Camille Paglia? I think what occurred was Camille kept her bra but burned her brain." So says poet Audre Lorde in this amazing and enlightening compendium of quotes on everything to do with gayness: from Natalie Barney's famous remark, "Women's looks were my only books," to columnist Lance Browne on the short-lived marriage of a bisexual movie actor to a bisexual supermodel--"Their careers are real, their marriage isn't. It's matriphony"--to Maria Schneider's story of how she was fired from a Carlo Ponti movie for not concealing her lesbianism. There's also writer Glenway Westcott's report of a conversation with Truman Capote, in which he asked the aging writer if he took any exercise. "Massage," Capote drawled. The ultimate gossip book, rich in once-scandalous news and opinion, In or Out should not only bolster cocktail conversation for the next five years but prove an invaluable resource for writers and activists. --Regina Marler
