This fascinating book is the first to explore the texts that circulated before the genre of "gay fiction" came into being. Including extracts from stories and novels written by such well-known writers as Henry James, Willa Cather, Herman Melville and D.H. Lawrence, "Pages Passed from Hand to Hand" is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the literary treatment of homosexuality.
