This work examines the life and fiction of Charles Jackson, a pioneer gay writer who addressed taboo issues with insight and sensitivity. The closets of addiction, repressed sexuality, and violence he expolored were not merely "untidy" but "deadly". His stories about "outing", gay-bashing, molestation, thrill killers, and media sensationalism are now more relevant in the 21st century than when they first appeared in the 1950s.
