5 Fassbinder, Rainer Werner Fox and His Friends (1998)
New Yorker Video 1998 6301551656 VHS Tape As New 
Unopened video. Still sealed in original shrink-wrap. NO flaws or defects. Never viewed.

Fox and His Friends (German: Faustrecht der Freiheit) is a 1975 West German film written and directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, starring Fassbinder himself, Peter Chatel and Karlheinz Böhm. The plot follows the misadventures of a working-class gay sideshow worker who wins a lottery, and who falls in love with the elegant son of an industrialist. His lover tries to mold him into a gilt-edged mirror of upper-class values and ultimately swindles the easily flattered lottery winner out of his fortune. The film takes an incisive look at the relationship between money and emotions. Love is seen as a commodity that can be bought for money and lasts only as long as it is profitable.

Trivia: The normally overweight Fassbinder dieted strenuously to lose weight in order to play the role of Fox, which included a full-frontal nude scene.

9 Goodwin, Joseph P. More Man Than You'll Ever Be!: Gay Folklore and Acculturation in Middle America
Indiana University Press 1989 0253204976 / 9780253204974 Paperback Like New 
As new first printing (softcover.) Very Fine. No marks or writing in book. Corners and covers crisp. We ship promptly, and conscientiously pack your purchase in layers of protective padding.

Seeing gay folkore as a neglected area in the field, Goodman demonstrates that folklore is a major factor in acculturation within the gay community and is consistent with folklore use in other subcultures. The primary examples presented here--jokes, cautionary tales, experiential tales, etc.--were collected in the early 1980s and show some age, such as the explanation of the color coding of bandannas. Most useful will be the exploration of a separate argot, or vocabulary, used within the gay community. Based upon the author's doctoral dissertation, this is a well-researched and documented work that will be valuable for experts in the field and motivated general readers. - James E. Cook, Dayton and Montgomery Cty. P.L., Ohio

18 Spring, Justin Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo Artist, and Sexual Renegade
Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2010 0374281343 / 9780374281342 Hardcover As new 
Like-New, unread hardcover in dust jacket. Jacket has a trace of shelfwear, now protected in a clear mylar Brodart sleeve. 496 pages.

Samuel Morris Steward (1909 – 1993), also known as Phil Andros, Phil Sparrow, and many other pseudonyms, was a poet, novelist, and university professor who left the world of academia to become a tattoo artist and pornographer. A friendship with modernist giant Gertrude Stein provided introductions to literary figures such as Andre Gide, Lord Alfred Douglas, Thomas Man and Thornton Wilder. It comes as no surprise that an Ohio State University freshman who tricked with Rudolph Valentino when he was passing through Columbus, OH on a national tour should later become the official tattoo artist of Hell's Angels, San Francisco chapter. A life so charmed sounds like it could be fictional. Some of it probably is.
