I have looked through this book a number of times at bookstores because my husband is a Cather fan, and because "Death Comes for the Archbishop" must be the best book title ever. But I have thought of the book a few times over the years because it discusses that the Bishop was interested in banjo music, which is amusing in itself. Yet it came to mind specifically because on the most right-wing of Catholic reactionaries, one of NOM's founders in fact, Robert George, is known for being a devotee of the banjo and apparently plays it all the time when he is not thinking up lies about gay people. So with that constellation of references, I am particularly happy that a gay man (identified so by the Unity website) Washington Post jack-of-all-trades critic Philip Kennicott has won the Pulitzer Prize. It is about time that an out gay man won the prize for criticism. Because when I was involved somewhat with that world a few decades ago, sooooo many critics were, and I presume, are gay. But it was a strangely closeted vibe that obtained amongst critics I knew. In fact I remember specifically when Mr. Kennicott was hired at the Post, another critic who was even gay himself, harumphed that he could not believe the Post hired such a obviously "out" guy. What a strange place the world is, and thank God it is changing. For the closeted critics world needed changing more than anything, and there a cultural lesson in that generally. Somehow I think the simple fact that arts critics were involved with reviewing all those you know frilly arty things, made it in converse less likely that a gay vibe would be accepted. Well, as a former Post classical music stringer myself, who did the first review in a major paper of a Gay Men's Chorus with my little blurb in the Post at the time, I am super happy Mr.Read more ›
