Editorial Reviews

Review

...an immensely valuable book ... Rofes's ideas ... certainly will prove controversial. They also make Dry Bones Breathe perhaps the most important book about gay male culture and community of the past decade. -- The Nation, George De Stefano --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Rofes look at gay life and culture--including his own--is the most refreshing take on gay male sexuality I have read in ten years. Yes, he takes on other gay writers, but he takes on their ideas, he doesn't attack them. His insights into the AIDS crisis, and how gay men are adjusting to a post-crisis era, are profoundly moving. I would recommend this book to anyone who's had it with scoldings from gay white puritans and reactive posturing of gay radicals. Rofes occupies the sensible center of the new sex wars, and does so with grace, tact, and style. A very important book.

Eric Rofes was clearly ahead of his time (he died suddenly of a heart attack in 2006). How he would enjoy the current, contentious sexual politics among gay men! This book remains the answer to much of our current debates, on what it means to be a sexually active and fulfilled gay man in 2013... and counting. No one else has faced these questions since this book was released with such clarity and honesty. A must read.

Puts the current policy shortcomings and struggles for prevention, care and treatment of HIV infection in perspective. A good read for gay men who are too young to remember how the AIDS epidemic directly affected so many.

6 of 13 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on September 5, 1998
Format: Paperback
In addition to authoring a well-reasoned argument for declaring an end to the AIDS "crisis," Rofes offers a spirited rebuttal of Signorile, Rotello, Kramer et al. It's too bad he's so militantly self-important about it. Incredibly, one (long) chapter describes the terrible dilemma he faced having to choose between UC Berkeley and Harvard. He then goes on to denounce his opponents as "privileged"! The odd Biblical reference in the title makes a little more sense once you get to the part where Rofes calls for a gay version of Promise Keepers. It's easy to picture the author fantasizing about pushing Signorile, Rotello and Kramer out of the way so that he can once and for all be recognized as the true gay Moses.
