Closet Writing/Gay Reading: The Case of Melville's Pierre. Chicago: U of Chicago P, James Creech's Closet Writing/Gay Reading is a remarkable book in several ways.   I’ve been enjoying wandering in and out of Melville’s incredibly strange, Pierre: or the Ambiguities in which I plan to read in conjunction with James Creech’s wonderful study Closet Writing/Gay Reading, and I began a collection of Wescott short stories just recently published for the first time, a thoughtful and much-appreciated gift.
