Liars, powerful characters, criminals. The story of some of the most controversial and cruel homosexual figures in history (from Alexander the Great to Ernst Röhm, from Margaret Mead to Lawrence of Arabia) in an original illustrated essay, published by Il Saggiatore, full of erotic and passionate stories. In a provocative and irreverent style, the book opens new vistas on what identity and normalcy mean, on the meaning of political and personal struggle, shedding new light on unseen facets of queer history.
