It surfaces suddenly and dramatically during an impromptu romantic dinner.
The opening quotations give the game away from the beginning, but that is probably deliberate on the part of the author.
I thought this short story was fine work. In Mark we see a seemingly perfect man ruin and destroy so much because he feels homosexuality is wrong, and acts out violently. The author does not condone such action, far from it, but homophobia is nevertheless an interesting subject to tackle with a short story. How does homophobia arise in the individual? How can we as a society extinguish it? These are some of the questions the story raises.
If you enjoy this short, I suggest you take a look at 'The Caseworker's Memoirs' - a further investigation of various phobias from the author.
My advice would be to enjoy the first two thirds of it and, when he exits the restaurant, stop reading and write your own ending.
The subject is homophobia, a topic very close to my heart, and this is an interesting take in as much as it’s told from the perspective of the homophobic person, an angle that you don’t see very often.
It’s a quick read that starts with telling the story of the perfect husband, a kind and thoughtful man, but it’s cleverly entwined with an air of menace, so even from the very start you get the feeling that this perfect man is hiding something very dark. I can’t say more without giving it away completely, but suffice to say, I really enjoyed this little story – it’s shocking, uncomfortable reading at times, but that makes it an even more important story.
