From Kirkus Reviews
Derison's debut literary novel follows Max Bredman through a journey of self-discovery...with a sense of truth often lacking in gay literature, particularly those with a focus on eroticism over compelling plot structure. Derison seamlessly integrates sex into the story. The novel strives to bring a sense of insight...illuminating the humanity of the characters through clever dialogue and intriguing situations...[T]he novel's grasp of human behavior and hot-button political issues like same-sex marriage keeps the scenes invigorating and animated. An insightful, challenging addition to the noble ranks of gay literature. --Kirkus Reviews
