In the Land of Alexander - Hale, Keith
Paperback. Alyson Publications. 1990. Good condition (except for cutout on first page)
In the summer of 1989, Keith Hale set out to discover the gay life and culture of Eastern Europe and Turkey, a region not known for its gay movement. This unusual travelogue combines historical and cultural insights with first-hand experiences. Just as Edmund White, in States of Desire, found each city in the U.S. to have a distinct personality, Hale finds each of the countries he visited to have a unique appeal for the gay traveler. His book is of special interest given the dramatic changes that occurred in the Balkans soon after his visit.
