"Curt Child is your everyday man in his mid-forties, but he has a problem. He just can't seem to get gay enough for anyone to notice, and that's why he's enlisted the help of his oldest--and gayest--friend S. Teri O'Type to drag him a few inches down The Road to Greater Gayness."
This book interested me in that I'm in a similar situation, although I'm not in my mid-forties, far from it, by at least a few years . . . oh well. I recently moved back home, leaving my comfortable little world behind. I have to make new friends, but I'm so out of touch with `the gay community'. After 30, you're considered ancient, I've gained weight, there's some gray in my hair, `cause I haven't had a good cut and color in ages, and I can't remember the last time I got my buttocks waxed and buffed, (never). I'm certain my `membership card' will be revoked because I've gotten so un-gay. So, I read this book, because even though it's a satire, I hoped to find nuggets of wisdom to encourage me to be a better gay. I found that wisdom in this book, but not in the way I expected to. Make sure you stay with the book to the second half, where it all starts to add up. This is like Paulo Coelho's `The Alchemist', a simple story until you get smacked in the face by the hand of profoundness. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was fun and meaningful, a highly recommended must-read for any gay man struggling with what it means to be `gay'.
along in a dipsy hs-het world dominated by pizza,
beer-prosecco, Tommy Hilfiger and buds who call each
other dude. The hero and his alter ego evangelize on
Judi Dench, heuvos rancheros and pube shaving while
pop kultur and gay imaging get shagged. Buttercheeky comedy.
This is a cleverly written look at what some people believe to be 'norms' in this beauty, thin worshiping, have-to-be-like-the-rest culture we find ourselves somehow drowning in - gay, straight or otherwise. Is there such a thing as Greater Gayness? Is there such a thing as the 'norm?' No, actually, there isn't. But there is such a thing as a great satire written lovingly by a very observant, talented writer. Can't recommend this piece of witty (LGBT) fiction highly enough.....errrr....read the book :)

I found myself doing quite a bit of seesawing throughout this novel - not completely sure if I was captivated or confused. You see, the novel is well written. Read morePublished on December 20, 2012 by Freedom1001
