Cures by Martin Bauml Duberman
Book DescriptionMartin Duberman gives a witty and searingly candid account of his journey to acceptance of his homosexuality despite the efforts of psychotherapists to cure him of it. This is the tenth anniversary edition of Cures: A Gay Mans Odyssey , Martin Dubermans 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 mans story; its 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.
