Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Anderson's second memoir (Tune In Tokyo: The Gaijin Diaries) is a lively and invigorating look at the hormone raging days of adolescence as the author tries to make sense of his overwhelming desire for both candy and men (not to mention man-candy). At age 15, one month after finally acknowledging his attraction to men, Anderson is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. As he grapples with his identity and new found desires, Anderson struggles to maintain control over his physical health. He suffers a series of diabetic episodes and hospitalizations which are told in short alternating chapters. The author recounts these parallel struggles in colorful detail: he describes his "gay porno magazine obsession" as a "deep, dark dungeon of delicious, honey-dipped immorality fondue." This type of dry, self-deprecating humor is emblazoned throughout and helps the reader keep apace as Anderson relays his emotional and physical instability. Staying true to his experiences, Anderson evokes the juvenile tendency toward self-destruction in a way that is simultaneously funny and frustrating. The combination gives readers a visceral taste of the rollercoaster ride that was his young adulthood. (Mar.)

Review

"Chronicling his years growing up in the ’80s gay, diabetic, and living in North Carolina, the book is easy to devour thanks to vividly hilarious tales that shift from glorious self-deprecation to spot-on observations of the changing world around him...entirely relatable. And so deliciously sweet.” —He Said Magazine

“A lively and invigorating look at the hormone raging days of adolescence...Dry, self-deprecating humor is emblazoned throughout...a visceral taste of the rollercoaster ride that was [Anderson’s] young adulthood.” —Publishers Weekly

“Dishy...with a Smiths soundtrack [and] a Sedaris streak.” —Brian Howe, INDY Week

“Tim tells his story with an airy, self-deprecating humor that’s likely to draw you in pretty quickly.” —Ron Hogan, Beatrice.com

“Uproariously self-deprecating.” —The Advocate

"With Sweet Tooth, [Anderson] offers a winning memoir that breaks new ground for the gay coming out narrative." —North Carolina Literary Review
