For it to be illegal to love another person is obscene, but not that far in the past. “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” is a novel set at the end of the nineteenth century, with the backdrop of Oscar Wilde’s imprisonment for having sex with another man. Following the effects of this event on a small Nevada town, author Paulette Mahurin touches on the state of gay society during this period well. “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” is a strong addition to historical fiction collections exploring gay issues.
