Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dan Curzon is one of the most brilliant and incisive writers and commentators working in the national gay community. He holds up a mirror that can enable us to see the world around us, the prejudice, the joy, the triumph, and the heartbreak. . . . I read the book in a single sitting and think you will as well. It's one helluva read." --Newt Dieter, The Advocate<br /><br />"Daniel Curzon is central and essential to the history of our community's culture." -- --Doric Wilson, playwright

on HALFWAY TO THE STARS: Cable Car Tales of a Grumpy Gripman
From COL'S CRIMINAL LIBRARY/UK

We have pretty much the diary of a grumpy cable car gripman. We suffer with him during his daily dose of never-ending interfaces with San Francisco's diverse population. Drunks, gang members, the elderly, blacks, Hispanics, Orientals, politicians and perverts all cross his path daily and all seem to irritate him in one way or another. There's some sadness to accompany his bitterness as he rages against all things politically correct.
I think I could empathise with him, as I sometimes have the same dark thoughts myself. Maybe as I get older I'm becoming less tolerant and more irritated by society in general. Curzon whilst venting his fury is extremely funny at the same time, on that basis 4 from 5.
