Jack Carroll, a former New Yorker now living abroad, is a good friend whom I've known since 1993. About a year later he posted a series of six articles about New York gay life before, during and after the 1969 events now known as Stonewall. Many lesbian and gay people see Stonewall as a singular turning point in our collective history, the launch pad of the modern movement for social validation and political equality in the United States.
After moving to Europe, Jack undertook a major revision and extension of the original articles. The result is a truly amazing, full-fledged memoir of his life and times, offering the perspective of a uniquely astute and articulate observer. The project is not yet (late 2005) fully completed, but it is already quite impressive: see http://www.nycnotkansas.com/ (use your BACK button to return here.)
