Originally published in 1999 and set in New York, this is a story of the beginnings of a moving and lasting gay relationship between two men. Delaney’s work breaks all the taboos relating to stereotypes, inter-racial love and homosexuality in the family home.
Written by black, gay science-fiction writer, professor, and theorist Samuel R. Delany, and drawn by artist/martial arts instructor Mia Wolff, Bread & Wine is a graphic autobiography that flashes back to the unlikely story of how Delany befriended Dennis, and how they became an enduring couple—Delany, a former professor at Philadelphia’s Temple University, Dennis, an intelligent man living on the streets.
