  • Andrew Holleran es el seudónimo literario de Eric Garber (nacido en 1944), un novelista, ensayista y cuentista estadounidense. Fue miembro del grupo literario The Violet Quill, compuesto por siete escritores homosexuales que coincidieron en Nueva York y que se reunían para leer y comentar sus escritos. En 1978 publicó su primera novela, Dancer from the Dance, ambientada en el mundo nocturno de las discotecas de Nueva York y Fire Island. La novela apareció el mismo año que otras importantes obras de ambiente gay como Nocturnes for the King of Naples de Edmund White y Faggots de Larry Kramer. Con esta última se han establecido numerosas comparaciones: tratan sobre las mismas discotecas y sobre los mismos temas literarios, aunque Holleran se muestra siempre literario y soñador mientras que Kramer destaca por su incisivo humorismo satírico. Otras novelas de Holleran son Nights in Aruba (1983), The Beauty of Men (1996) y Grief: a Novel (2006). Con esta última, ganó en 2007 el Premio Stonewall Book. Colabora con sus cuentos en revistas como M2M: New Literary Fiction y sus artículos de opinión aparecen con regularidad en The Gay and Lesbian Review.

Garber, who has historically been very protective of his privacy, uses "Andrew Holleran" as his pseudonym. Dancer from the Dance, his first novel, was published in 1978. Its narrative takes place among the discotheques of New York City and Fire Island, although it is Fire Island, with its literal distance from the mainland, that provides a pivotal backdrop for the novel. Dancer shares many of its locales, as well as its themes, with Faggots, Larry Kramer's novel, published in the same year. Holleran's second novel was Nights in Aruba (1983), and his third is titled The Beauty of Men (1996). The Beauty of Men takes place in central Florida where the main character, a 47-year-old gay man, has gone to take care of his quadriplegic mother. Holleran's Grief: a Novel received the 2007 Stonewall Book Award. For a number of years Holleran taught creative writing at American University in Washington, DC, and he continues to publish short fiction in gay short story collections like M2M: New Literary Fiction and frequently publishes articles in The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide He received the Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement from Publishing Triangle in 2007. He graduated from Harvard College in 1965. (en)

  • Andrew Holleran é o pseudónimo de Eric Garber (nascido em 1944), um escritor e ensaísta norte-americano, mais conhecido pela sua novela Dancer from the Dance, publicada em inglês em 1978. Holleran é um proeminente romancista da literatura gay pós-Stonewall. Foi membro do The Violet Quill, um grupo de escritores gay que se juntou por um breve período nos anos 1980-81, e que contava com Edmund White e Felice Picano, entre outros. Dancer from the Dance, o seu primeiro romance, foi publicado em 1978. A história passa-se nas discotecas de Nova Iorque e Fire Island, embora seja esta última que, sendo ilha, proporciona o cenário principal, pelo seu maior isolamento, para o desenrolar da novela. Dancer partilha muitos dos locais e temas do romance satírico, mais ácido, de Larry Kramer, Faggots, publicada no mesmo ano. Os dois romances possibilitam uma comparação fascinante: enquanto Holleran é contido, literato, e sonhador, Kramer é satírico, contundente e humorístico. O mais recente romance de Holleran Grief: a Novel recebeu em 2007 o Stonewall Book Award. Holleran é professor de escrita criativa na American University em Washington, DC e continua a publicar contos em colectâneas de literatura gaym como M2M: New Literary Fiction, e publica com frequência artigos na The Gay and Lesbian Review (pt)
