After a long time not reading any gay books I did some research and discovered James Purdy. I can't believe I had never heard of him since he is my author soul mate. This is the darkest, most disturbing and strangely sexy book I have ever read. I have never in my life read a book the whole way through in one sitting (except for smoke breaks, of course.)

This book is how I discovered James Purdy and it left me wanting for more (in a good way). This is not at all a comfortable book. Mr. Purdy writes about everyday feelings, occurences and thoughts, but they are the ones no one else wants to talk about. We keep them to ourselves because no one like to feel "unsettled" "Color of Darkness, Don't Call Me By My Right Name and A Good Woman" are a few of my favorites.
