Loving Them Both: A Study Of Bisexuality And Bisexuals
by Colin MacInnes
Loving Then Both is an account, pungent and often very funny, of the occurance and practice of bisexuality.
As the author of a series of outstanding novels – whose fame derive in part from their exact descriptions of how people actually behave rather than how they are thought to — Mr. MacInnes is exceptionally well-qualified to write about such an area of experience. He seeks, from observation and reflections, to classify the varieties that bisexuality can assume, and to describe its practice, without euphemism.
As among the ‘normal’ life with the bi’s may be every bit as sombre or comical, not to mention humdrumL Mc. MacInnes points out, though, that the label ‘gay’ is not altogether earned. Together with the pioneering involved in setting out the realities of present-day bisexual behavior, there is a brief analysis of the theme in literature, notably in the works of E.M. Forster and Balzac. In this area alone, Mr. MacInnes’ oversations are worth more than a few tomes of blinkered criticism. Not since Robert Greene explored the Elizabethan society of rogues have we had so direct a line on a little-known but populous world.
