Among the Blobs
This experimental story details an hour a young gay man spends on the New York City subway in the early 1970s. In those years, the subway system revitalized a campaign from the late 40s, "Miss Subways." Advertisements, one or three to a car, were close to the one reprinted in the story from 1948. During a john stop-off, he achieves some satisfaction . . .
