what's the best gay literature?
The Haunts of His Youth, by Jonathan Strong.
Most of the stories aren't "out" gay fiction but they're all gay fiction, so that's interesting.
City and the Pillar - Gore Vidal
Let's see for my Queer Fiction class we had to read:
The Hours - Michael Cunningham (though more Lesbian than gay)
The line of Beauty - Alan Hollinghurst
Oranges are not the only fruit - Jeanette Winterson
The gifts of the body - Rebecca Brown
its not the point of the book, but it contains homosexuality
This is probably my favorite book by William Burroughs. There is fucking crossdressing gay pirates!
