    When John Rechy's explosive first novel appeared in 1963, it marked a radical departure in fiction, and gave voice to a subculture that had never before been revealed with such acuity. It earned comparisons to Genet and Kerouac, even as Rechy was personally attacked by scandalized reviewers. Nevertheless, the book became an international best seller, and 50 years later, it has become a classic. Bold and inventive in style, Rechy is unflinching in his portrayal of one hustling "youngman" and his search for self-knowledge.

    Der Wiener Schauspieler Peter Gerhard (1908 bis 1994) las in München eine Auswahl von Kurzgeschichten, in denen der Penis bis tief in den Mund gesaugt und die Zunge in den After geschoben wird. So deutlich geht es hier ab, dass man manchmal den Ohren nicht trauen will. Oscar Wilde mit seiner Erzählung "Teleny" beschreibt aufs Detail einen geilen Ritt bis zur Erschöpfung.
