Aha there is the cover I remember from the early 80sThis was a very interesting reread on a number of levels 30 years on I was first handed this book in its original paperback edition by the same female friend who had introduced me to slashfic back when it was all on gasp paper in tiny editions before the internet had been invented Thus primed I assumed the author's name was a pseudonym for a female author writing a very well written and closely observed historical novel and send up of Gothic romance Right on 4 out of 5 counts the modern Kindle edition enlightens meThe biter bit; I still encounter a couple of fans a year confused about my own writerly gender possibly due to cover and genre cuesI've had this experience of misapplied reading protocols before Back about age 14 I read a very strange British book about the first trip to Mars Primed by Heinlein juveniles I naturally assumed the heroes were the dudes who'd built the spaceship and this odd fellow Ransom was the antagonist some kind of traitor I attributed the weirdness to the book's being British Hitting the same book again at age 28 with the assumed and necessary culturalreligious education now in place I was well into Out of the Silent Planet before I realized I'd actually read it before upside down at least with respect to its intended moral compassAnyway Gaywyck is still well written wonderfully weird and a send up of Gothic romance tropes though obviously a loving one That sincerity I think is what gives it its legs It is also still a very funny book but all the humor is meta our earnest young protagonistnarrator Robert White doesn't have a snarky fiber in his beingI was reflecting sorrowfully the other day that I had been a faithful friend and eventually given the book back to its rightful owner and it was now presumably gone forever when I bethought myself of the flourishing Kindle e reprints and checked I was delighted to see Mr Virga had also discovered the venue and I hope he's getting proper e royalties nowhttpwwwGaywyck First pAnother thing I was missing 3 decades ago was much clue about modern gay culture; a whole lot of in jokes in the novel that whooshed over my head back then at least dealt glancing blows this read One useful book I read subseuently was Gay New York a trade paperback social history but that was so long ago I can't offer a review I have a dim memory of its being enlightening at the time Doesn't seem to be on Kindle thoughAnyway recommended if you like the kind of cognitive torsion about genres that I do
