This is the tenth anniversary edition of Cures: A Gay Man's Odyssey, Martin Duberman's classic memoir of growing up gay in pre-Stonewall America. The tale of his desperate struggle to "cure" himself of his homosexuality through psychotherapy is utterly frank and deeply moving. But Cures is more than one man's story; it's the vivid, witty account of a generation, of changing times, shifting social attitudes, and the rising tide of protest against received wisdom. For this tenth anniversary edition, Duberman has written a substantial new afterword that updates both his personal history and the ongoing struggle for a more just society.
