The Accidental Martyr: A True Story of a Gay Sailor’s Fatal Beating (The Stacks Reader Series)
They were two sailors on an uneasy ship. One became a killer, the other his victim. What drew them together on an autumn night was rooted long ago in a fear and revulsion that still haunt the American psyche. Including an interview with the author by series editor Alex Belth.
The Stacks Reader Series highlights classic literary non-fiction and short fiction by great journalists that would otherwise be lost to history—a living archive of memorable storytelling by notable authors. Curated by Alex Belth and brought to you by The Sager Group, with support from NeoText (www.NeoTextCorp.com).
