Description - Cures by Martin Bauml Duberman
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.
