Dennis Altman first travelled from Australia to the United States when Lyndon Johnson was President, beginning a long obsession with the US. In the early 1970s he was involved in New York Gay Liberation; his 1971 study Homosexual: Oppression and Liberation, is widely regarded as a classic work in its field. In the 1980s Altman lived in San Francisco during the onset of the AIDS epidemic. The election of Donald Trump took place while Altman was back in California on one of his frequent visits. This diarised memoir, moving between Australia, the United States, Europe and parts of Asia, tells a story of a half century of activism, intellectualism, friendship and conflict.
