Set in Texas, The Gay Place consists of three interlocking novels, each with a different protagonista member of the state legislature, the state' junior senator, and the governor' press secretary. The governor himself, Arthur Fenstemaker, a master politician, infinitely canny and seductive, remains the dominant figure throughout. Billy Lee Brammerwho served on Lyndon Johnson' staffgives us here "the excitement of a political carnival: the sideshows, the freaks, and the ghoulish comedy atmosphere" (Saturday Review). Originally published in 1961, The Gay Place is at once a cult classic and a major American novel.
