Originally published in Europe in the 50s to avoid prosecution for obscenity, The Gaudy Image is one of the most important `lost' gay novels. A classic of gay fiction available in a new edition for the first time in 30 years.
Set in New Orleans and featuring a colourful cast of louche but lovable characters, the story follows Titania aka Thomas Schwartz through the backstreets, bars and club of the French Quarter in search of the perfect lover--the Gaudy Image.
This beautifully written story is both elegant and caustically humorous, erotic and sympathetic.
'Internationally recognised as a socially important work of gay literature’ Roger Austen. ‘Among the best gay novels of the fifties’
Samuel R Delaney.
'A lovely piece of publishing’
