I Advocate: Eric Andrews-Katz

Here’s what Eric Andrews-Katz, author of The Jesus Injection, is passionate about this month.



…forgotten LGBT literature. Many young LGBT folks may have heard of Breakfast at Tiffany’s because of its film version, but they don’t know gay author Truman Capote’s many other short stories, like “Miriam” with its creepy little girl, or that Tennessee Williams wrote short stories as well as plays, including “One Arm,” about a boxer turned hustler. People should discover the murderous plots in the novels of lesbian legend Patricia Highsmith (pictured above) (The Price of Salt, Strangers on a Train, the five Ripley books). There are many others, and they should not be forgotten. They are our legacy, and they have many stories to tell. LambdaLiterary.org
