Being Fluid

Amos Lassen

On July 6, 2015 James Baldwin went to the MacDowell Colony where he planned to write his gay novel, “Giovanni’s Room. However, first he was to have brunch with Robert Mapplethorpe. We are immersed into the situation in this new work of fiction by Jeremy O. Harris who takes us deeply into his own psyche as he discovers how to be “fluid” and begin “the work of decolonizing their desire.” To say anymore would be to ruin the reading experience.
