Christopher Bram’s novels range in subject matter from gay life in the 1970s and the career of a Victorian musical clairvoyant to the frantic world of theater people in contemporary New York. His novel “Father of Frankenstein,” about film director James Whale, was made into the movie “Gods and Monsters” starring Ian McKellen, Lynn Redgrave and Brendan Fraser. Bram’s new book is “Eminent Outlaws: The Gay Writers Who Changed America” (Hachette/Twelve).
