Dancer From the Dance

Ben is BACK and reviews Dancer From the Dance this month!

The novel revolves around two main characters: Anthony Malone, a young man from the Midwest who leaves behind his “straight” life as a lawyer to immerse himself in the gay life of 1970s New York, and Andrew Sutherland, variously described as a speed addict, a socialite, and a drag queen. Their social life includes long nights of drinking and dancing at New York gay bars. Though they enjoy many physical pleasures, their lives lack any spiritual depth. The “dance” of the novel’s title becomes a metaphor for their lives. Malone is described as preternaturally beautiful; much of the plot concerns Sutherland’s efforts to leverage Malone’s beauty by “marrying” him to a young millionaire. (via Wikipedia)
