Unconventional Gay Novel

Lubiewo is a superbly written and unconventional gay novel that can be read in a number of ways. It is the book's informative character, however, that will be most important to the majority of readers. Michał Witkowski exposes a world that has never before been portrayed: the gay underground. Departing radically from both political correctness and the aesthetic sublimation so characteristic of homoerotic Polish writing in the twentieth century, he allows the homosexually desiring Other to remain the Other - without embellishing or glorifying their world. This is what makes Lubiewo so vulgar and provocative.
