Literary List

Frontiers In Los Angeles magazine asked me to put together a reading list this Summer that the LGBT community might want to read. I put out a call to agents, editors, publicists, and authors that I knew. I wanted books that would be published between March and September. The reponse has been overwhelming and compiling a list of just ten books has been daunting.

There were some books that I really enjoyed, but I wondered if they were "Summer" reading. I don't want to insult readers, assuming they just want fluffy beach books. I'm hoping to have a spectrum of books available. But just ten?

I e-mailed the editors and hoped they would consider more book features because something I've witnessed: there are a lot of great queer books coming out!

If anything, I hope to feature them on this blog. Oy!

I can't wait to see this list.

Since L.A. has summer weather in winter, I think we can read winter books (i.e. weighty, literary stuff) in summer. Right?

In what issue will the list appear?

LOL. It's supposed to be in the Pride issue, so sometime in mid June. I'll post it here.
