Un-Natural State is a beautiful history of Southern gay life in the 20th century. Author Brock Thompson deftly tells the story by weaving together oral history, gay history, Arkansas history, and his own story. This book goes beyond city life and looks at rural Arkansas gay life through the eyes of an academic while keeping the material available to every reader. • University of Arkansas Press (uapress.com). —Review: Angel Curtis
