3.0 out of 5 stars He can do better, 24 May 2008
This review is from: My Undoing (Paperback)
No doubt, Mr. Shaw is one of the last legendary gay porn stars, although I'm not much interested in his video performances.
But prefer his novels, poetry, and some of his music.
I must admit that this new book is not my favourite.
He can do better than this.
It is said to be his autobiographical story, but in fact, only about several years of his career. He honestly writes about drugs, porn industry, club, accident and his unrequited love. It was refreshing that unlike some insider stories, he did not go deep into gossip materials. Something I found interesting was that although (from his novels) it is clear that he knows how to write fiction, he did not try to write fictitious stories to satisfy readers excitement, but just told as it was.

I hoped he'd write more about how he survived after the fatal accident, and more about his family. When he dose, it is probably the most interesting and touching parts of his book. Maybe this is because he is well aware of his readership. I hope this changes him, so he can write about things that aren't necessarily related to sex and drugs.

I have read some of his short stories in the magazines.
They were so well written. I wish he would publish his short stories and unpublished poetry (they were once in his web-site).

a minor point here. It wasn't a fatal accident - if it had been, he couldn't have survived!
