Abstract or Summary
  • Down the road is a collection of short stories written in the post-Stonewall tradition of gay men's literature, which has focused on works that reflect gay experience and specifically autobiographical fiction; a desire to write for gay readers without having to explain circumstances or points of view to readers unfamiliar with gay experience and culture; and to write in language actually used by gay men. The stories in this collection were selected because of the picture of an evolution of gay consciousness they collectively describe. The narratives are situated throughout a progression of various stages of awareness and integration from a boy's first discovery of his sexuality in Reception, to grappling with what that realization really means in world of compulsory heterosexuality in Uncle, to the violence encountered particularly by those who have drifted further to the margins in reaction to their placelessness in a straight world in A Little Split, to a state of assimilation into a formal gay community in Etude, to a state of consciousness that has moved beyond those limitations in Down the Road.
