Flamboyant, mercurial Alistair Dodge and steadfast, cautious Roger Sansarc are second cousins who are both gay and whose lifelong friendship begins when they first meet as nine-year-old boys in 1954. At crucial moments in their personal histories their lives intersect, and each discovers his own unique - and uniquely gay- identity. Through the lends of their complex, tumultuous, yet enduring relationship - and their involvement with the handsome model, poet and decorated Vietnam vet Matt Loguidice, whom they both love - Felice Picano chronicles and celebrates gay life and subculture over the last half of the twentieth century. From Malibu Beach in its palmist surfer days to the legendary parties at Fire Island Pines in the 1970s, from San Francisco during its gayest era to AIDS activism in Greenwich Village in the 1990s, Like People in History presents 'the heroic and funny saga of the last three decades by someone who saw everything and forgot nothing' (Edmund White).… (mere)

Spanning around thirty five years starting 1954 we follow the spasmocically interweaving lives of two boys, second cousins, both gay. Roger Sansarc, the narrator, and Alastair Dodge are to look at more like brothers, but there the similarity ends. Alastair is the polar opposite of the staid, conservative Roger. Not surprisingly their relationship is volatile, with Alastair invariably the one to light the fuse.

It is Alastair who awakens Roger to his gayness by virtually offering him to another. Later it is Alastair who covets Rogers greatest love, The dark and handsome Vietnam hero, Matt Loguidice, sailor, model, poet and gay icon. but that is just a small part of this vast novel that takes us through the days of gay sexual liberation to the devastation of the AIDS epidemic as Roger leads us though his varied life.

But this is much more than a chronicle of gay life through the second half of the Twentieth Century, it is a brilliantly written, entertaining, thought provoking, funny and moving. ( )

Eine überragende Geschichte über zwei Brüder, die zudem auch noch meisterlich erzählt ist. Bravo! ( )

Picano weaves a story of two protagonists in this wonderfully written book; his second cousin, Alistair Dodge, self obsessed, attractive and only out for himself and to connect with the high and mighty. And, Matt Loguidice, a beautiful Viet Name Vet just return from Nam, decorated with a past that is discovered at the end of the book. Matt is extremely handsome, always chased and becomes the story teller's Roger Sansarc lover. The story wheels its ways through the several decades including the advent of the gay movement, to AIDS and through self discovery and people no longer being in the closet but accepting and celebrating their gayness. It's a tear jerker at the end and quite frankly it reminded me of the many many friends I personally lost to aids, the death watches and friends that had given friends the means to commit suicide. It was a terrible period and this book brought reminisces of this period .... a delightful and touching book. ( )

Flamboyant, mercurial Alistair Dodge and steadfast, cautious Roger Sansarc are second cousins who are both gay and whose lifelong friendship begins when they first meet as nine-year-old boys in 1954. At crucial moments in their personal histories their lives intersect, and each discovers his own unique - and uniquely gay- identity. Through the lends of their complex, tumultuous, yet enduring relationship - and their involvement with the handsome model, poet and decorated Vietnam vet Matt Loguidice, whom they both love - Felice Picano chronicles and celebrates gay life and subculture over the last half of the twentieth century. From Malibu Beach in its palmist surfer days to the legendary parties at Fire Island Pines in the 1970s, from San Francisco during its gayest era to AIDS activism in Greenwich Village in the 1990s, Like People in History presents 'the heroic and funny saga of the last three decades by someone who saw everything and forgot nothing' (Edmund White).
