The Queen's Throat hardcover w/jacket like new first edition by Wayne Kostenbaum
Gay Literature/Music - A passionate love letter to opera, an elegy for a vanished generation of its gay devotees, and a work that trimuphantly overturns our received notions of culture, sexuality, and personal style. It is a learned, moving, and often very funny work of cultural criticism, subversion, and homage.
