If you read no further here’s my take: pick up this biography for an insightful examination of a lost literary hero who wrote a seminal book about life in World War II—including gay life. Yep, we’re talking WW2. Not quite the Tom Hanks scrubbed clean greatest generation kind of stuff. And although Burns is no sympathetic character, Margolick makes clear that he’s worth remembering as part of our gay literary history that’s slipping away. Happy Gay Pride Month.
