The influence and impact John Rechy and Gordon Merrick held in my formative years as a gay teen cannot be emphasized enough. I must have bought and thrown away dozens of copies of Numbers (Johnny still burned in memory) and The Lord Won’t Mind (I know the tape measuring scene by heart) for fear of getting caught with them in my room. To display them now fills me with joy.
