Christopher Bram’s latest book, Exiles in America, which was published by Morrow last August, is an exploration of relationships, religion, global politics, and sex. This is the ninth novel by Bram, whose Father of Frankenstein was turned into the movie Gods and Monsters and renamed accordingly. His other novels include The Notorious Dr. August: His Real Life and Crimes (2001) and Almost History (1992).
I interviewed Chris about this and his other novels, the creative process, being a “gay novelist,” and the state of gay fiction shortly before the publication of Exiles. — Michael Bronski
