Liz on Tom

Elizabeth Hand has a lengthy obituary for Tom Disch on Salon. It being online-only, she’s had far more room to write, so it is well worth a look. It is also the first obituary I have seen that actually uses the word “gay” as opposed to pussyfooting around the issue by saying that Disch “lived with” Charles Naylor or some other such polite euphemism. (Clute used “partner”, which made the point without setting off copy editor alarms.)
