Product Details

By James Broughton

With James Broughton's puckish humor, Coming Unbuttoned recalls his journey from early childhood and military school, following his muse (named Hermy) into an avant-garde world of poets, artists, and filmmakers.

His groundbreaking films were championed by Jean Cocteau and Maya Deren, and he wrote poetry in company with Robert Duncan and Alan Watts. On these frank and witty pages, he gives firsthand witness to life in the artistic underground from the 1940s into the '90s as he becomes an icon of the gay counterculture, culminating with his winter-years' romance with Joel Singer, the love of his life.

This Query Books edition contains a new Foreword by Mark Thompson, author of Gay Spirit; and two never-before published, unexpurgated chapters.
