"Palm Springs, California, is today probably the most famous gay and lesbian resort in the world. Not only do thousands of gays and lesbians descend on the place for annual spring celebrations, but the city boasts a homosexual population of over 40%, and the second mayor in a row is gay." "How Palm Springs became so gay is the theme of A City Comes Out: How Celebrities Made Palm Springs a Gay and Lesbian Paradise; the first such look at the resort's famous gay and lesbian population as well as the stars who made it famous." "Written by recent Palm Springs resident David Wallace with the same reader-friendly approach that the New York Times called "inspired" when reviewing his 2001 book Lost Hollywood/A City Comes Out will open with a look at the city's "gayness" today, followed by richly detailed, anecdote-filled stories of many of the legendary personalities who, over the decades, were part of its homosexual lifestyle. Among them are Rudolph Valentino, Mary Martin, Janet Gaynor, Rock Hudson, and Tab Hunter." "It is an essential book for gay and lesbian residents, visitors, and tourists, as well as for anyone who loves the movies and the real stories behind the stars' fame."--BOOK JACKET.

Contemporary Desert Photography: The Other Side of Paradise emphasizes the artist's view of the desert in a selection of startling visual works. The differing viewpoints in these works by 26 American photographers provide a rich and deep experience and speak to the fragility of nature, to the sense of desolation, to the beauty of untouched land, to the ethereal quality of decaying structures, to the fleeting nature of perception, and to so many other ideas. The relationship between photography and reality is a particularly complex one. As viewers, there is often a basic expectation that we will see reality in a photograph. But that reality is actually formed by the vision of the photographer who may manipulate the viewpoint of the photograph or the techniques used to capture the image. In some cases, the artist may engage in elaborate manipulations of the subject matter itself.
