“Provide[s] nuggets of insight for both analysts and patients to ponder and adopt. . . . Engrossing and heroic.” —The Washington Post “Becoming Gay is a good read—well-written [and] filled with useful insight particularly for those struggling to accept their homosexuality.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer“Richard Isay's own story is fascinating. . . . Like Jonah, Dr. Isay has been inside the belly of the whale.” —The New York Observer “Richard Isay has made a career out of the struggle to make psychoanalysis safe, available, and effective as treatment for gay men. . . . His belief in his patients' inherent worth is palpable and a powerful curative agent.” —The New England Journal of Medicine
