With I Can Give You Anything but Love, Gary Indiana has composed a literary, unabashedly wicked, and revealing montage of excursions into his life and workÃ¢ÂÂfrom his early days growing up gay in rural New Hampshire to his escape to Haight-Ashbury in the postÃ¢ÂÂsummer-of-love era, the sweltering 1970s in Los Angeles, and ultimately his existence in New York in the 1980s as a bona fide downtown personality. Interspersed throughout his vivid recollections are present-day chapters set against the louche culture and raw sexuality of Cuba, where he has lived and worked occasionally for the past fifteen years.ÃÂ Connoisseurs will recognize in thisÃ¢ÂÂhis most personal book yetÃ¢ÂÂthe same mixture of humor and realism, philosophy and immediacy, that have long confused the definitions of genre applied to his writing. Vivid, atmospheric, revealing, and entertaining, this is an engrossing read and a serious contribution to the genres of gay and literary memoir.
