Little Boys Blue

Ace Star paperback, 1965.

Strangely, the book isn't much of a pulp read. Rather, the author parries various arguments religious, philosophical and psychological against homosexuality. The prefatory quote is taken from Karl Popper; peppered within are bits from S. I. Hayakawa, Bruno Bettelheim, Kurt Godel, Max Planck, and "Ernst and Gellner, two authorities on the chimpanzee." Quite a heady read for something that was probably taken home in a brown paper bag.
