Often bawdy, always lyric, and sometimes romantic, A Chosen Landscape relates the tale of a young gay professor among the pleasures, temptations, and hypocrisies of life at a university in the Bible Belt. He journeys through the rich sexual country of this wickedly involuted world, usually titillated but often unsatisfied by his carnal escapades. Whether he can discover his chosen landscape in the duplicitous society of a smug Southern academic town remains to be seen."Here follows a gay wanderer's song cycle about his earlier years. In this genre a young man leaves home for the wider world in search of his fortune and some amorous exploits (perhaps even a mate). . . . Such lyrical fables conclude in one of two ways: with a chanson about arrival in a chosen landscape or about the wayfarer's last end. Enjoy the voyage as far as it goes. I did."
