4. BOOKS: A Kick Against the Pricks, David Norris
The former candidate for president in Ireland nearly broke the world's pink ceiling, as he almost became the first openly gay man to be elected to such a high office. The Dublin senator who helped decriminalize homosexuality in his country writes in candid detail in his new autobiography, released Thursday, about the homophobic scandals that led to his defeat. He's also a Joycean scholar known for no-holds-barred rhetoric, so it's a good read.
