Paul Monette


"The struggle for true openness and intimacy is a lifelong struggle for all of us, gay and straight alike," wrote Paul Monette in Last Watch of the Night: Essays Too Personal and Otherwise. In 1992, three years before his death, Monette won the National Book Award in nonfiction for Becoming a Man: Half a Life Story, an autobiography detailing his early life and his struggles with his sexuality. Authors David Groff and Carol Muske-Dukes speak about Monette's literary and cultural legacy in this clip from Open Road Media.
