Review:

"A no-holds-barred character study and a history of the local gay movement . . . An investigative piece on the mechanics of big-city government in all its expedient, back-biting splendor." --The Washington Post

"A remarkable work [of] biography, social history, and political machination . . . Exceptional." --The Los Angeles Times
