Elliott Mackle

Why on earth did American publishers ignore this masterpiece for a decade? It's a literary punch in the mouth, tender caresses shared by mates, a novel of men driven mad by starvation and lonliness, a semi-autobiographical tale of cruelty, heroism and stedfastness. Among the homo-romantic novels of recent years, I rank it with "Call Me by Your Name," "The Garden of Evening Mists" and "The God in Flight."
