  1. I received a copy of this book through First Reader Giveaways Thank you, Leslie Leslie Smith is a gifted writer and I found this book to be a terrific page turner, and an emotionally stirring read As a gay man of the era before the one the main character, David, belongs to, I could not always relate to his perspective or feelings, and I had some major qualms about both his conclusions as regards the end of the AIDS crisis, as well as the use of the ghost character which was eventually reconciled [...]


  2. Marvellous book Beautifully written with a distinctive voice and sly humor which work together to convey what was, to me, an important experience Perhaps personal experience that made empathy quicker for me AIDS and gay life has been my turf for thirty years But it would be a mistake to pigeonhole it into into genre fiction The central character is a gay man coping with the experience gay men have, but the issues are universal grief, families, and how to cobble together a bit of humanity It does [...]


  3. 3.5 of 5 stars Nice, Sympathetic Story of the Maturing of a Gay Hustler AIDS I m excited to have won this as a First Read so thanks, Leslie This is a sympathetic, quietly humorous story of a young man telling about his coming of age, reflecting on his hustling, best friends and the issue of AIDS HIV, bringing us from the past to the present.By quiet humor I mean that it wasn t laugh out loud funny, but a serious story told in a less serious way, like the way the MC used actors to replace the peo [...]


  4. I met the author at a book signing in White Plains last year I was impressed with his candor and sense of humor Both are evident in his novel At the beginning of each chapter the narrator provides a list of items either concerns, observations, or gratitudes It acts as a foreshadowing in the story.This novel takes us through the AIDS crisis and the Gay Rights Movement I came out the year before Stonewall 25, and some parts of this story are set during that time My own nostalgia kept me moving thr [...]


  5. As a gay man that never fully experienced the era of the AIDS epidemic, I find personal stories of those who lived it very telling and educational to give me a greater deeper understanding of accounts of the past This story hits me in the gut as a gay man that has lived a lifestyle and at times questioned my motives for doing the things that I do whether those interactions are with family or sexual partners, the way I reflect as a man mirrored the way David went through his growth spurt towards [...]


  6. I enjoyed this book tremendously It was well written, entertaining, and a page turner The lead character, David, was confused and conflicted as well as humorous, thoughtful, inspiring, and lovable I felt that his dead friend and mentor, Robert, was the alter ego of David who guided him to become the responsible adult he finally turned out to be It gives the reader a great perspective on the coming of age gay man in our society as well as an understanding of the AIDS crisis This is definitely a [...]


  7. I started writing my memoirs several years ago, and then hit a block in the middle of a chapter This book inspired me to start writing again That s probably the highest compliment I can pay to an author I ll let the other reviewers give insight to the plot, characters and writing style.


  8. Warm, funny, controversial and killer sex scenes Feels almost autobiographical, well, I know it is but it s a great piece of fiction and an engaging read I highly recommend.


  9. What a fantastically raw journey that simultaneously stirs your own hidden sympathy and makes you allows you to recharge your empathy A recommended read for EVERY type of person.


  10. I loved Sally Field Can Play the Transsexual I have read a lot of gay themed novels over the past thirty years and this is one of the only ones to deal with the subject of being and living with an HIV status The story is not maudlin or depressing, it is very straightforward and presents it like it is men who are poz can and do have normal lives The author s style is very easy to read and the characters are believable and likeable It is very funny in parts, very moving in others, very realistic i [...]


  11. I really enjoyed reading this article As a 28 year Long Term Survivor of HIV myself, I can relate to all of these stories on so many different levels My faith,spirituality,and a new found love and respect for myself is what helped me perservere through those dark times And now my life is healthier and manageable I only just discovered letskickass today after reading the article in last months Positively Aware Magazine I am living in Boston now and look forward to finding out about your organiz [...]


  12. There were some really beautiful, on point passages mainly talking about Pride and HIV AIDS But perhaps the story took on too much and the voice at times was so clunky that I had to keep myself from skipping over paragraphs to keep it from being great Still, it was a fast, good read.
