Synopsis

Fiction. LGBT Studies. MARGINS OF TOLERANCE focuses on gay men in flux traveling, in transit, or at a crossroads in their lives, seeking to understand their place in the ever-changing landscape of gay identity. This collection also focuses on loyalty and betrayal: between gay lovers, among the gay community itself, and lastly between the gay community and the at-large heterosexual community.

"Eric Sasson is a seriously gifted writer who has uncovered a powerful, haunting truth, that we only know we've reached the margins of tolerance when we come face-to-face with the intolerable."—Justin Torres
