“Gay Paradise” a “fascinating study”


The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide this month includes a review of Imagining Gay Paradise, calling the book a “fascinating study” in “how to be gay in Asia.” The Review  neatly summarizes the three parallel stories that form the core of the book.

“Atkins,” the Review says, “weaves together history, architectural theories, gender studies, colonial practices, and even Confucian dualities into a compelling narrative that feels like a novel. The book illustrates the remarkable changes in the region’s history through the personal stories of a few unusual men.”
