Nameless Offences: Homosexual Desire in the 19th Century
H.G. Cocks


2312 - Kim Stanley Robinson This book deserves for me to write several paragraphs about it, because the world is vast and complex and there are so many things to say and talk about, and hopefully I'll be able to come back and do just that, but for now it just gets a brief note.It gets five stars not because it's perfect, but because of its sheer scope and ambition and because it was exactly what I wanted it to be. It isn't about one thing but about our entire civilization after we strike out for the solar system, in terms of health and lifestyle and politics and geography and technology and sexuality and relationships and everything that comes with being a human being. That's what makes it so gripping and so personal even while it's truly epic in scope.
