Bread and Wine, Samuel R. Delany (Fantagraphics)

An updated re-release of award-winning gay author Samuel R. Delany’s autobiographical graphic novel, Bread and Wine is a cross-cultural, cross-racial, cross-class love story about his unlikely relationship with a homeless man. The new version includes Delany and his long-term partner Dennis reminiscing about their meeting and how artist Mia Wolff captured their story in her drawings. Part of the fun is the men’s frank and explicit descriptions of their physical connections.
