A Stonewall Honor Book

A best book of 2018 at The Cut • NPR • Electric Literature • Thrillist

“Marvelous . . . a vital book about how to make political art that offers lasting solace in times of great trouble, and wisdom to audiences in the years that follow.” –Washington Post

“Ingenious . . . Isaac Butler and Dan Kois place us on intimate terms with the play's characters, ideas, and humanity—and their book, a prescient reminder of the need to follow one's truth in the face of oppression and intolerance, will be an invaluable text for years to come.” –Lambda Literary Review

“This book should be required reading for anyone who cares about art in all its forms.” –Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
