Sometimes fiction writers woo you with words so poetic that the novel or short story almost becomes a prose poem. That is not the case here since Mr. Sharlach writes pretty much sans metaphors and to the point. What he has done, however, is create fresh and blood characters that when you finish this eminently readable novel, there is a hole left in your heart and you miss them. For several hours they became as real to me as anyone I know who walks on this planet.
Reading this novel was like taking a journey all too familiar as the author writes about the ten year stretch of time in New York from 1977 until the late 1980's when the events that took place there were replicated in a lesser degree in other major cities in the U. S.Read more ›
Mr Sharlach's first novel shows great promise for him as a writer of fiction. His characters are well developed and his plot flows as if he had kept a diary of daily life of that era. This is a well-written tale of an era that cannot be forgotten. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in diversity, acceptance, and the fact that love for another human being is not restricted by gender.
quite predictable in places. All in all, if you are interested in that time period, not a bad read.
