One early book that made an impression on me was "The Forgotten Door" .

One early book that made an impression on me was "The Forgotten Door" by Alexander Key. The main character comes from a time or place far more advanced than Earth in the present day. From the book I took away a vision of the future where technology made life simpler and happier rather than just busier and more complicated. At one point I read the whole science fiction section at my local library, reading my way across every shelf.

gordon johnston's book has not aged well. when i was reading it, it seemed to want to glorify the idea of heterosexual male dancers while presenting the most feminized images of male dancers he could find. the main subject of the book is depicted as being way too fascinated with his image and his body to show what being a dancer is all about. and the text that is written gives the young man an intelligence and insight that is obviously not his.

becuase the book was written in the late 1970s and early 1980s, it is understandable why it has this bizarre double message running over its pages. the author wanted the idea of a male dancer to be an accepted one. he forgot that he was rallying against years of public opinion that go the other direction.

Ok, soooo in another Universe long ago, a photographer approached a young 20 yr old dancer and asked him if he could write a book about him. They spent months together doing interviews and taking pictures. A contract was signed, and the book was sent away. BUT.... before there could be any further developments, the printing company was bought out by a larger printing company, and the book was shelved. Low and behold, unbeknownst to the dancer, the book was published 5 yrs later! So the long and short is...... I have just this month discovered that 30 yrs ago there was a book published about me, called "Dancing: A Man's Career". How cool is that! (How many of you have a book written about YOU) SNAP!
Though much of the book is not my words, it is my story. I don't think it is any less relevant in today's society, maybe moreso, given todays view on the Arts, if not our view on stereotypes.
