First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 606 pages. Landmark study on subject. One of the most important literary and cultural texts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Marjorie Garber's "Vice Versa: Bisexuality And The Eroticism of Everyday Life". Published to enormous critical acclaim by such self-proclaimed bisexuals as Gore Vidal. A prescient, stupendous achievement. "Garber's erudite, provocative study of bisexuality challenges the easy polarities of heterosexual and homosexual, straight and gay. A Harvard professor of English, she argues that bisexuality can be a mature, adult, sustainable way of living one's sexual life. Instead of being a third category, or a period of confusion, oscillation, and experimentation, as is often supposed, bisexuality, in her theory, reveals human sexuality to be a continuum, a process of growth and transformation. Many readers will be intrigued by her candid look at the erotic and romantic lives of dozens of notables identified here as bisexual: Georgia O'Keeffe, Cary Grant, John Maynard Keynes, Laurence Olivier, blues singers Bessie Smith and Gertrude Rainey, painter Larry Rivers, Virginia Woolf, John Cheever, Harlem Renaissance poet Claude McKay, rock star Kurt Cobain, among others. Garber devotes chapters to androgyny, marriages between bisexuals, sexual-conversion narratives, bisexual love triangles, with close analyses of bisexual themes in Henry James, James Baldwin, Anne Rice's vampire fiction, and movies like 'Basic Instinct' and 'Personal Best' " (Publisher's blurb). "One of the key purposes of studying bisexuality is not to get people to 'admit' they are bisexual but rather to restore to them and the people they have loved the full, complex, and often contradictory stories of their lives" (Marjorie Garber). An absolute "must-have" title for Marjorie Garber collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest American cultural critic/historians of our time. A fine copy. . ISBN 0684803089.
