When I found he achieved his goal of leaving gay literature for mainstream I looked forward to once more reading his carefully chosen words. I expected his formal writing classes to only increase his appeal. I was very wrong. The MacGuffin was a difficult book for me to read. It took weeks to finish as I found it easy to put down and difficult to pick up. The writing is technically correct and emotionally vacant. My previous loyalty to Mr. Craft forced me to finish the novel but with the knowledge I have no desire to ever know one more minute of the lives of these characters. This book introduced me to dull characters leading dull lives in a dull location.
At times Mr. Craft added to his characters boring days with lengthy elaborations of physics, golf, or weight lifting. Perhaps I lack the ability to recognize good modern straight literature as taught in California graduate schools. I wish the author nothing but success. I know I am not looking forward to another novel like The MacGuffin.
