    Dancer from the Dance

    • Year Released: 1978
    Dancer from the Dance is a 1978 novel by Andrew Holleran about gay men in New York City, United States. The novel revolves around two main characters: Anthony Malone, a young man from the Midwest who leaves behind his "straight" life as a lawyer to immerse himself in the gay life of 1970s New York, and Andrew Sutherland, variously described as a speed addict, a socialite, and a drag queen. Their social life includes long nights of drinking and dancing at New York gay bars. Though they enjoy many physical pleasures, their lives lack any spiritual depth. The "dance" of the novel's title becomes a metaphor for their lives. Malone is described as preternaturally beautiful; much of the plot concerns Sutherland's efforts to leverage Malone's beauty by "marrying" him to a young millionaire. The novel is known for its vivid imagery, lush language, and captivating depiction of gay men searching for love and acceptance in harsh, dreamlike urban landscape. The novel was one of the first among gay fiction to portray the party atmosphere of Fire Island, a summer community on Long Island where many urban homosexuals celebrated drugs, parties, tea dances, and sexual exploration.

The novel takes place in Washington D.C., following the personal journey of a middle-aged, gay man dealing with the death of his mother. The novel received the 2007 Stonewall Book Award. The narrative takes place in a predominantly gay neighborhood in Washington D.C. near the famous Dupont Circle.

Considering the novel’s exploration of the complex and highly personal emotion of grief the title seems simple, yet remains effective.
