In a world where gay men are strictly defined as effeminate, weak, un-athletic sissy's who smile submissively with limp wrists, Ed Gallagher violates our cultural, societal, and global hallucinations. Gay men in general, and gay jocks in particular, will revel in the main character's revolution from within as he wrestles with such socially proscribed apparitions, and, surprisingly, survives as himself.
This book is for everyone - women and men, young and old, black and white, straight and gay, those with disabilities and those without. It is for anyone whose power has been limited by a lack of self-esteem and is inspired by gay men, whose self-esteem is making the deepest revolution.
The story of the main character's (Johnny spokain) adolescence, is almost haunting. It reminds me of a stephen king story in its portrayal of the nasty things that children and adults do. I don't want to mislead anyone, though. The story rings very true.
If you want to read a great story and with lots of substance and you don't mind reflecting on adolescence, I would recomend this book for you.

Ed Gallagher's work does a wonderful job of addressing the questions many youths face; especially sexual identity. The author does this with both insight and a sense of humor.Published on April 12, 2000 by William Suesholtz
