Blackouts by Justin Torre

Blackouts is Justin Torres’s long-awaited follow-up to We the Animals, and it is just as inventive, stealthy, and powerful. His latest blends truth and fiction, with the uncredited work of early-20th-century queer psychologist Jan Gay at its heart. Her research becomes the present-day project bequeathed to our young narrator by his elderly friend. Through actual excerpts, archival photographs, and their own sharing of experience, a queer history is retrieved and imagined forward in this thoughtful, lovely new work.
