In the memoir One of These Things First, Steven Gaines, a gay 15-year-old boy from a conservative Jewish family in the 1960s, humorously shares a bizarre account of his teenage years in Brooklyn and a stint at Payne Whitney, a private mental institution in NYC. Steven recalls a multitude of childhood memories, some disturbing, many sexually charged (think Augusten Burroughs and Running With Scissors).

in Fiction by

Season two of The New Adventures of Peter + Wendy is just around the corner and that kooky gang from Neverland, Ohio, we oh so quickly fell in love with last year is sure to bring back all the feels.

When we last left Wendy Darling (Paula Rhodes) she had landed her dream job and was leaving Neverland. She was also leaving her brothers John (Graham Kurtz) and Michael (Brennan Murray) and in a heartbreaking turn of events her OTL (one true love) Peter Pan (Kyle Walters). Cue tears.

Ten lyrical and lovely literary tattoos

in Potpourri by

You have to really love something to get it tattooed on your body. And I mean really love something — once it’s in your skin, that ink isn’t going anywhere. Even if you get it removed, there will always be a scar. Because of their permanence, tattoos can be a scary endeavor. But I can’t think of anything more worthy of permanent ink than something from my favorite novel. Certain books and quotes stay with you for a lifetime—so why not wear them forever on your skin? Luckily, I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here are ten literary tattoos that inspire us (or maybe just fill us with extreme tattoo-envy):   Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel…
