Arriving at Columbia University in New York City in 1967, Gerry Geddes found himself in the throes of a political, cultural, social, and sexual revolution beyond his wildest imaginings. Against a backdrop of the anti-Vietnam War movement at its most intense, the cultural upheaval of the fight for racial, gender and sexual equality, the sexual revolution exploding all around him,the vibrant theatrical and musical scene of the late 20thCentury, and the tragedy and horror of the AIDS epidemic, a love story unfolds. a love story of a romantic, 20-year partnership cut short by a deadly disease, of a gay man thriving in the worlds of performance and entertainment that opened up for him in his adopted home, and of the lasting affection he feels for the city itself – the city that formed and changed his life in unexpected and lasting ways. It is a tale bursting with humor and pain and passion and history told in a voice that is funny and touching and powerful, and uniquely his own.

    Indispensable piece of gay history at it’s epicenter (NYC)
    Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2023

    This was a fantastic large volume that brought to life both history of gay life from 1967-1995 as well as cabaret music scene history. Truly a fantastic document of life and times of one gay man witnessing the changing world. Personal stories of family relationships as well as losses during the AIDS epidemic are particularly illuminating and moving. It is amazing that Gerry is still THE cabaret director who develops shows greatly enhanced with both his personal experiences as well as encyclopedic knowledge of music. Essential read.
