In Let the Faggots Burn, "Townsend's heart-rending descriptions of the victims...seem to [make them] come alive once more." Kit Van Cleave, OutSmart Magazine

The research is thorough and the writing is very indepth. I feel as if I know each of these people after reading their stories. A very very vital book for anyone and everyone.
It is a book that doesn't lend itself to be read in one sitting, though. I keep having to stop as it's just too sadly tragic. Very few books have made me cry but this one does it. The feeling of almost predestination is very heavy.
I wish I could give it ten stars. A very important book for anyone interested in the LGBT struggle in the sixties and seventies.
