Edward Prime-Stevenson (1858-1942) has been described by one critic as "the first modern gay American author," and his novel Imre: A Memorandum (1906) has been cited as the first openly gay American novel. But fifteen years earlier, Stevenson published another milestone work, Left to Themselves (1891), a young adult novel described by its author as "homosexual in essence," the first such book ever published.
