He paints a well-rounded and sumptuously detailed picture of a large number of European cities during the 18th century.
Yet he’s constantly just walking right up to strange men and propositioning them; and what he calls melancholy comes off more as sulky fits of pique.

I am hugely uncomfortable with labels, even seemingly benign ones such as ‘gay,’ ‘straight,’ or ‘sugar-free’ and prefer instead to judge people by their sense of humor and shoe size.
