Romance fiction is one of the most popular literary genres in America today. New writers are constantly emerging, and students and general readers often have trouble finding current information about their favorite authors. This book provides alphabetically arranged entries on more than 100 contemporary American romance writers. Each entry offers biographical information, a critical discussion of the novelist's works, and a list of fiction and nonfiction by the writer, to help readers enjoy and appreciate the full scope of the author's activity. A bibliography of print and electronic resources concludes the volume.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gay love and life just before Stonewall.
This second memoir by Felice Picano follows him as a bored and restlessyoung man to Italy, where he finds both romance and adventure among thedenizens of Cinecitta, the famed Italian film studio. The first half of thebook chronicles his relationship with Djanko, a director. In the secondhalf, "The Jane Street Girls," Felice has returned to New York,has landed a job at Graphique magazine, and is involved with a man who isold enough to be part of a more closeted, cautious generation.

Of thethree memoirs, this one is not *as* compelling, but is still veryworthwhile reading, and delivers a blow in its final pages that still hasme reeling, wanting to hear more, even though there's not much more thatcan be said. Worth it for that alone, actually, and makes the title evenmore meaningful, changing it from possibly self-serving toironic.

Preceded by Ambidextrous and followed by A House on the Ocean,AHouse on the Bay. ... Read more
