Today on Books+ we have a bookshelf full of memories - the good and the not so good. Mandy Sayer tells us about her life as a tap-dancing busker in New York, and her difficult marriage to African-American poet Yusef Komunyakaa. But we also have a cat that’s killed in the trenches of world war one, elephants dying during the conflict in Mozambique, and a tortoise killed at the height of the Cold War.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
