The Secret Lives of Children
Picano's bold, funny and outrageously honest memoir of suburban 1950s childhood forever altered how we remember childhod and how we think of it today. So scandalous at the time that the book's first shipment to Great Britain was seized and burned on the London docks, AMBIDEXTROUS has since become a much-prized classic, and is now re-released as Volume One in this completely repackaged series of Picano's classic complete memoirs.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"A stunning tale." - San Francisco Examiner "Compelling and engrossing, it will conjure up memories of everyone's adolescence, straight or gay." - Out Magazine "A book worthy to stand besides those of Edmund White, Rita Mae Brown and John Reed... A vivid portrait" - The Weekly News "Picano deftly evokes those placid Eisenhower years of bicycles, boners and book reports. He makes us remember what it feels like to be a child. It really glows." - The Advocate
