Spinning the Record: Stories

Spinning The Record documents the search of its impoverished queer white and Latino protagonists for individuality inside the spectrum of the gay identity. Within the primary settings of gay clubs and raves in Manhattan and urban areas of New Jersey, these protagonists search for meaning and identity through illicit drugs, sex, pop culture, Greek mythology, and Christian iconography. “Robert Hyers shows us the magical side of the familiar in these enchanting stories. He unveils the numinous and terrible possibilities of bars, boutiques and ordinary apartments; things we know, but too often fail to see in all of their complexity. These tales trace the seams where body and soul, the mythic and the mundane meet; even better, they point out the ways in which those fissures both separate us and create space to reach out to one another.” -Peter Dubژ, author of Subtle Bodies and Beginning with the Mirror “Never before has the question, ‘What was your first bar, seemed so urgent. Robert Hyers’s stories not only recognize their importance, but they capitalize on them – evoking their full range of fear, thrill and dramatic action.” – Jonathan Harper, author of Daydreamers
