True to Life Story, Unlike much other gay fiction,
By A Customer
This review is from: Boys On the Rock P (Stonewall Inn Editions) (Paperback)
Unlike so many other works of gay fiction that portray characters who are all gorgeous men and their equally gorgeous and equally rich friends, this novel shows an ordinary person going through a painful and truly extraordinary event in his life. This was the first gay novel I read and while the writing is uneven at times and poor in a few instances, the story and its unfolding has very few flaws. There is no opera or gay bar or fabulous trip to Paris in this novel, there is honesty, clarity, and real emotion. Before reading White or Picano or any of the more recent books, read this one.
