  1. You discover you have a half-brother. You resent him for being stronger and healthier, and are disgusted when he sings a dirty song with a soldier.

    You think you have had a revelation. In reality, you have gotten yourself in a muddle, and later it makes you miserable.

    If you ever take to living as you play piano, it will be very exciting indeed.

  2. Matthew Houlbrook's 2005 book Queer London opens with a romantic letter from one man to another. It's a good introduction, it's a very helpful description of queer 1930s culture, but what struck me, more than the story, was the citation.
