"A poignant account of black working-class men obliterated from history because of their sexual orientation ... Plethoric with unpublished words and phrases critical for validating a long homosexual presence in our African history. A beautiful, sad and heroic story!" Professor Glenda Gray, President and CEO, South African Medical Research Council
"Edwards and Epprecht use history from below to disturb prevailing and dominant narratives of the South African past while also re-examining a particular history of the present with calm integrity, diligence, imagination and thoughtfulness. This is a rich and rewarding book." Wale Adebanwi, Rhodes Professor of Race Relations and Director, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford
"A fascinating path-breaking account of African male same-sex practices ..." Dunbar Moodie, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, New York
