In an interview, Bram named his single favorite book by some of the writers covered in his new literary history, "Eminent Outlaws."
- Edward Albee: "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"Hands down.
- James Baldwin: "Another Country." In a way this is a post-gay novel. It has gay and straight characters and a sex scene between a gay man and a straight man. It's the mid-'60s and he's already writing a post-gay novel.
- Christopher Isherwood: "Down There on A Visit." I love "A Single Man," but "Down There on a Visit" is even better. I love its scope.
- Edmund White: "A Farewell Symphony." It has a wimpy last quarter, but it has great stuff before then.
- Tennessee Williams: "A Streetcar Named Desire." The great American play, with a major gay episode in it.
- Armistead Maupin: "The Night Listener"
- Andrew Holleran: "Dancer from the Dance." It really holds up. It's now become a great historical novel of New York in the '70s.
