daniel gives an overview of the book:

A man arrested by a Vice Squad cop decides to get revenge when he gets out of prison. This was the first angry gay protest novel (Putnam, 1971). REVIEWS: Something You Do in the Dark  . . . is a real novel, not a political tract. It deals convincingly and powerfully with the persecution of a minority, but it tells the story of an individual, not a representative martyr. Its hero is torn between rebellion and cowardice, love and rage; he is never too good to be true. I greatly admire Daniel Curzon for writing this book.”     -- Christopher Isherwood “Powerful and engrossing!” -- Walter Allen, author of The English Novel “I think Dark  is truly ‘powerful and engrossing.’" -- Michael Sarotte, author of Like a Lover, Like a Brother " I read the book when I was young. It was a gift to all of us.”            -- David Mixner, Author/Activist

"Love him or hate him, Curzon has always

been a provocateur, a curmudgeon, and above

all a true independent, calling it as he sees it

without fear or favour.  . . . a wicked memoir...
