Finistère (Little Sister's Classics #8)


by Fritz Peters (Author) and Michael Bronski (Introduction)

A lyrical gay coming-of-age story first published in 1951, acclaimed by Gore Vidal and The New York Times, about Matthew, a young American who moves to France with his mother following his parents’ divorce. As Matthew navigates his budding sexuality and complicated new relationships, he is forced to confront finistère—land’s end—where the brutal truths of the world can be found.

Finistère was a profound achievement in the early years of the 1950s, and sold over 350,000 copies. This new edition, which returns this beautiful book to print, includes an appendix of materials about the book and author, as well as an introduction by acclaimed author Michael Bronski.
