mainstream ficiton with gay characters

Hello everybody!

I'm very much looking forward to your replies, as I'm somewhat lost...

I'm thinking of writing a PhD on homosexuality in Russian translations of Anglophone literature, and I thought it would be interesting to look at well-known novels and short stories which are not primarily aimed a gay audience -- those which even a potentially slightly homophobic reader might pick up, and whose translators rarely pay special attention to the topic (thus often revealing their attitudes). Something like "The Hours" (as opposed to, say, "The Swimming Pool Library"). Let's brainstorm some titels together, please!
