The book Nosotras, Opening the Door to Our Love Life, which has all the ingredients of a novel, is in fact true and autobiographical. The book covers the last four decades of the life of Ofelia Fox, wife of the owner of the famous cabaret Tropicana of Havana, who went into exile and became the first female Spanish radio personality in Miami. She later co-authored Tropicana Nights, The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Night Club. Ofelia met Rosa Sánchez and, unexpectedly, they became love partners. Their relationship lasted over four decades. In 1964 Ofelia and Rosa moved to Hollywood, and from then on the two faced their life together with an adventurous spirit and an unshakeable devotion for each other. They raised Rosa's boy, Toto, now a successful businessman in Southern California who is happily married and has three sons. Ofelia and Rosa never stopped creating and writing. The combination of Ofelia's banking career with Rosa's role as one of the first female chief financial officers in a West Coast advertising agency enabled them to be passionate part-time writers. The couple won many awards and were best profiled in the highly regarded Women Playwrights of Diversity: A Bio-Bibliographical Sourcebook by Jane T. Peterson and Suzanne Bennett, published in 1997: "Los Angeles based Rosa Sanchez and Ofelia Fox use theater to promote social awareness and have written extensively in both English and Spanish for radio, television, and the theater. They combine comedy with serious themes, particularly those that affect women and Latinos. In their plays they bring to the surface homosexuality and AIDS...." The Fox-Sanchez hillside home had been a hub for many activities, but recounting publicly the couple's four decades of intimacy was not in Rosa's plans. But eventually, and not without trepidation, she recognized that Nosotras, Opening the Door to Our Love Life was an uplifting story begging to be share 1. Language: English. Narrator: Linda Kerr.

'Has everyone always been in love with you? Of course they have, who am I kidding? What did they say about Helen of Troy? That her face launched a thousand ships? That's you, you're that beautiful. A thousand ships'New York City in the eighties, and at its decadent heart is Guy. The darling of Fire Island's gay community and one of New York's top male models, Guy is gliding his way to riches that are a world away from his modest provincial upbringing back home in France. Like some modern-day Dorian Gray he seems untouched by time: the decades pass, fashions change, yet his beauty remains as transcendent and captivating as ever.Such looks cannot help but bring him adoration. From sweet yet pathetic Fred to the wealthy and masochistic Baron, from the acerbic and cynical Pierre-Georges to Andre, fabricating Dalí fakes and hurtling towards prison and the abyss, all are in some way fixated on him. In return for the devotion and expensive gifts they lavish on him, he plays with unswerving loyalty whatever role they project onto him: unattainable idol, passionate lover, malleable client. But just as the years are catching up on his smooth skin and perfect body, so his way of life is closing in on him and destroying the men he loves.Edmund White has in Our Young Man created some of the richest representations of gay male identity, from the disco era to the age of AIDs. What links them all is the allure and enchantment they find in beauty. Revelling in its magic, Our Young Man nonetheless slips beneath the seductive surface to examine its dangerous depths, exploring its power to fascinate, enslave and deceive. Mesmerising, blackly comic, and delicately crafted, this is an exquisite novel from a contemporary master.

Battlefields

Battlefields is François-Marie Banier's celebration of gay culture at its most flamboyant and proud. Comprised of photos taken at Gay Prides in Brussels, London, New York, Paris and Rome between 1994 and 2018, Banier captures the full glamorous spectrum of those parading, all the feathers, sequins and leather, but, more importantly, also the characters beneath the make-up and wigs-"I photograph the poetry, the humor, the confrontation with blinkered convention." Havinglost close friends to AIDS, he remembers the tragedy of "this elusive, diabolical virus," but also the compassion of those who nursed and supported its victims: "More than angels. Such delicate devotion, full of invention. Loyalty, so touching, overwhelming." For Banier, light inevitably conquers darkness: "I follow and paint as usual with my camera, almost always in black and white. The wild ones, the choir boys, those crowned with Valda throat drops, the notaries in their fancy dress, the babes of Gala and Salvador Dalí-storytellers from every country, a whole world that knows how to laugh and to pray."

Angels in Our Midst

To make visible this 'invisible army of compassion', Mary Fisher set out to photograph caregivers of people: children, women, and men with HIV and AIDS. Fisher had to move in close: into the subdued hospital rooms of very sick, into laughter of friends, both healthy and infected, who worked together in food banks preparing meals for housebound patients with AIDS. Moving in close was often difficult. Fisher went on the road for four years to photograph and write the story behind the courage, dedication, devotion, and love of caregivers, the angels in our midst.

This book is a passionate cry from the heart. From the heart of someone who has given almost everything she has to the cause of justice and happiness for heavily-abused children and for HIV/AIDS sufferers, and from the heart of the real, here-and-now, South Africa - no pretence, no frills, exactly as it is, with supporting evidence. The people are all real people, with their real names; the incompetence, the neglect of duty, the corruption, the malevolence, the despair - and the goodness, the tenderness, the devotion to a cause, the trust and the joy - are all real. Writing the book has been an extremely draining and highly emotional experience, and this inevitably shows through in much of the text. But it had to be written, because the terrible failings of the 'system' have to be exposed, because the author needed the catharsis, and above all because the lives - and deaths - of these deeply hurt but irresistible children needed to be recorded and remembered. Here there is little for your comfort and much cause for the beloved country to cry.
