The writers showcased include Attitude contributor Damian Barr, literary legend Felice Picano, and British authors like Neil Bartlett and Patrick Gale. Bartlett offers an old story, Caesar’s Gallic Wars, about a teenage boy taking his summer exams and discovering his sexuality, while Gale’s Brown Manilla concerns an envelope in which a post-war wife discovers the secret of her husband’s earlier love affair with another man – which cries out for a Julianne Moore led adaptation.
