"Hirschfeld: The Biography . . . is the definitive one―a major work to match the man . . . Stern does a damn good job of covering a fair share of everything." ―Playbill

"Much-needed, affectionate, and entertaining . . . As the first substantive biography of Hirschfeld, this will be welcomed by art and Broadway lovers alike." ―Kirkus Reviews
