Vanishing Rooms

"Vanishing Rooms is an amazing love story for everyone. Hard-hitting and sometimes raw, this wonderful novel speaks to both women and men. I admire Melvin Dixon enormously for his talent and courage." —E. Lynn Harris

"A short novel of immense impact, Dixon deals lucidly and intelligently and with polished brilliance, with themes of race and class and coming out which resonate as strongly now as they did a decade ago." —

"A complex, compelling work of art as blissfully sublime as it is exacting." —Thomas Glave, author of Whose Song?
