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).
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
