Fieseler Tinderbox Summary Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Fusing proper burial rights the city impervious to the survivors’ needs revealing a world of toxic prejudice that thrived well past Stonewall Yet the impassioned activism that followed proved essential to the emergence of a fledgling gay movement Tinderbox restores honor to a forgotten generation of civil rights martyrs. TinderboxRobert W FieselerBook Review 45This is a must read for anyone interested in LGBT historyWhy I was interested in reading this book The prologue talked about the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub and how so many people from all walks of life rallied together to show their support and recognize the tragedy as an American tragedy not just a gay one It then compared that public response to a very unknown tragedy from the 1970s that fought to even get its own community to publicly rally together during a time of need I had not heard of the fire at the Up Stairs Lounge The book did a great job piecing together the personal accounts of the traumatic experience from personal testimonies to public records and other publicationsThe book s formatThe book was presented in three parts Before the fire The fire itself The aftermath following the fireMy assessmentAuthor Robert Fieseler did a great job citing all of the sources to back up his fact based statements There were hundreds of footnotes As a textbook that is terrific and it definitely lent credibility to the depiction of the tragedy Unfortunately it also made the book feel like a textbook But the reader should get past that The second issue was that there seemed to be an identity crisis in how the story was told There were parts that were again very fact based and testimonies that were called out as coming from interviews and articles There were other parts that felt like a story The Before the Fire part of the book seemed to have the most push pull of narrative testimony and author commentary that seemed to be a little cliche in its descriptions But the reader should get past that While that type of disconnect made it difficult to connect with the people being depicted it did help set the stage for the following sectionsThe section that told the story of the fire itself was so fast paced and dynamic that I could not stop reading it This is why the readers should forgive the first section s writing style The second section really makes it feel like the reader is in the moment along side the victims and survivors It was emotional and realistic making it difficult to not feel empathy for all involvedThe final section of the book really did a good job of illustrating the chaos of what occurred in the aftermath This part of the book was well written and offered eual parts that frustrated the reader with its hopelessness while also offering hopeReaders should get past the first section while making sure to pay attention to who the characters are and then the rest of the book will go uickly This is an important book The author s premise to share this piece of history now to gain public awareness of the fire and also the challenges of being gay in the 1970s is validated and an
