This path-breaking study offers an exhaustive list of references and some very condensed academic perspectives, but balances these with personal recollections - 'memoryscapes' - and responses from interviewees. The first of its kind, this book explores the factors behind Gay Bombay, an online and offline social forum for 'gay' (and the term is problematised thoroughly in the opening section) people in the city. A very interesting read, both for the academic and the casual observer. I thought the best thing about this was the variety of perspectives presented, as well as some really moving personal accounts.
