Focusing on works by Rene Crevel, Jean-Paul Sartre, Roland Barthes, and Herve Guibert, this book studies how homosexuality functions at the limits of narrative, as part of the deep structure of narrative, and at the border between public and private discourse. It examines each writer in turn, reflecting on how their texts represent homosexuality, both implicitly and explicitly, and how the public sphere of their writing relates to the private sphere of their personal lives. The final chapter examines the AIDS-related works of Herve Guibert, which are both a meditation on and an exploration of AIDS, that most public of private phenomena.

"This fascinating book operates on the simple, fundamental premise that homosexuality inhabits a social place between public and private, and that, consequently, it serves as a sort of deep structure of knowledge, narrative, and identity. In five compelling and provocative chapters, Schehr works through the ramifications of his theory, uncovering unexpected alliances between and among his subjects, in the process giving us original, challenging, and potentially polemical insights." - Thomas DiPiero, University of Rochester
