The First Gay Novel      Nov-Dec 2014

Leaving The City

End of San FranciscoThe End of San Francisco
by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore
City Lights. 186 pages, $15.95

AUTHOR Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore is the artistic love child of Jean Genet and David Wojnarowicz, deconstructing language swathed in unbridled sensuality, while flinging readers into a disrupted, chaotic life of queer anarchy. I first encountered Sycamore a decade ago at a D-I-Y alternative space in San Francisco, reading stories drawn from sex work.
