In “The Shores of Bohemia,” John Taylor Williams explores 50 years in the iconoclastic summer colonies of Cape Cod. Book review by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan writes:
One of my favorite details in the book is that Norman Mailer invited his frequent intellectual sparring partner James Baldwin to stay in his brick house in the far East End, a place that seems to bob almost on the bay itself — and Baldwin did, for many summers. I wonder if, on his way into town, Baldwin ever crossed paths with another gay figure, Roy Cohn, who lived just a few doors down.
