review ✓ Jeb and Dash A Diary of Gay Life 1918 1945 C during the first half of the 20th century Documents his life and detai. I really liked this book I found myself identifying with Jeb uite a bit The editing left something to be desired the book came out in 1993 and I feel as though some of the juice might have been omitted There were also large swaths of time without entries or explanations I was fascinated almost the entire time I read this

review ✓ Jeb and Dash A Diary of Gay Life 1918 1945 Here is the journal of Jeb Alexander a gay man who lived in Washington D. I ll come clean and admit that I gave up half way through this book I am usually persistent if I ve paid for something but this just bored me I suspect that the severe editing combined with the very safe life style of Jeb contributed to the rather turgid styleThe editor is a nephew I think of the diary writer He is not gay He states in the introduction that the diaries are uite extensive so they are severely edited He removed the boring parts about the cruising and the casual meet ups I thought they would have been the interesting parts because what is left makes very boring reading Jeb was a public servant so he had to be very circumspect in how he lived or he could lose his job He was very shy anyway and not given to wild parties or rocking the boat Basically if he were alive today there would be no place for him in a reality TV show Although a sound enough man there is very little that stands out to warrant taking the time to read the edited diary entriesThe editor also took it upon himself to amalgamate certain persons into one condense days into one entry and remove parts that might offend the living relatives of those mentioned in the diary In effect what you have left is a very dry sanitised version of the man s life and largely impossible to gauge what he really was like I couldn t see any point in continuing with dreary day to day descriptions of going for walks or catching a bus These are no Orton diaries or Kenneth Williams diaries The best of his life or that most interesting to gay men is probably on the cutting room floor The editor in trying to preserve the memory of his relative has done him a disservice and a lot is lost to posterity Try reading The Evening Crowd at Kirmsers as a memoir of that time but in St Paul s

review ✓ Jeb and Dash A Diary of Gay Life 1918 1945 Ls the joy anguish of his on off love affair with college chum CC Dasham. This edited journal of a gay man living among a group of gay friends in Washington DC from 1918 1945 provided a fascinating glimpse into that world For me one of the most memorable moments which offered a uniue perspective of urban life during the Depression was when Jeb finds a man sleeping on a cot in his hallway The landlord had rented out the hall for 10 a month Eventually the cot disappears when the hallway tenant couldn t pay even the 10 As a person Jeb not his real namewas obsessed with his sometime lover Dash and spends much of the early part of the book whining about their relationship As one reader of the book says As a book it s a little down but enjoyable and I did get wistful when I wasn t wanting to slap Jeb

    Pdf/E–book (Jeb and Dash A Diary of Gay Life 1918 1945) Highly recommended I could hardly put this down I think I identified a great deal with the author It's amazing how very little some things have changed for gay men I really sympathized with Jeb's difficulties as he struggled to find a meaningful vocation tried to find a voice as a writer and struggled with his sexuality and tried to find love More than that it was fascinating to read firsthand accounts from someone working in Washington d
