The Year of Ice: A Novel
The Year of Ice: A Novel
"Features one of the most hilarious gay teen protagonists ever"
A Son Called Gabriel
A Son Called Gabriel
"Really humorous coming of age novel set in England. This is an author to watch for in the future. Also, this first time author welcomes e-mails and responds quickly to any questions you might have. A second novel is in the works"
Now & Then
Now & Then
"Great book from start to finish. Sexy, tragic and suspenseful. I could hardly put it down and turned into an anti-social bookworm at lunchtime because of it. This book was like Beneath the Wheel, Lord Dismiss Us and Call Me By Your Name all rolled into one. Highly recommended!"
The Vampire Lestat (Vampire Chronicles, Book II)
The Vampire Lestat (Vampire Chronicles, Book II)
"One of my favorite novels! Seductive, engaging and humorous. Interview With A Vampire is also worth checking out"
Cry to Heaven
Cry to Heaven
"This novel doesn't have anything to do with vampires but you won't care about that. Who would have ever thought that opera could be so very sexy..."
The Persian Boy
The Persian Boy
"Chronicles the relationship between Alexander the Great and his servant Bagoas"
Dancer from the Dance: A Novel
Dancer from the Dance: A Novel
"Somewhat grim but still very worthwhile novel"
Giovanni's Room
Giovanni's Room
"Another somewhat grim novel made all the more interesting by Baldwin's terrific writing style which makes you feel as if you're actually in Paris with the characters"
Like People in History: A Gay American Epic
Like People in History: A Gay American Epic
"One of the first gay novels I read as a teenager"
The Lure: A Novel
The Lure: A Novel
"Suspense, seduction and humour all in a 409 page package. Picano has a great way with words and the only thing which dampened things for me was the constant reminder (via the mention of mustaches and record players)that this book was set/written in the 70s. Every guy seemed to be built like a house with rippling muscles and big, bushy mustaches. 'staches aside, this novel is well worth reading"
Brideshead Revisited
Brideshead Revisited
"Stunning! Read the novel, watch the made for TV series. Enjoy them both"
Better Angel: A Novel
Better Angel: A Novel
"I really enjoy reading early gay themed novels and this is a worthwhile one to check out"
Maurice: A Novel
Maurice: A Novel
"Pure classic. Way ahead of its time even if it wasn't published til after Forster's death. The movie starring Hugh Grant is also worth checking out afterwards"
The Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library Classics)
The Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library Classics)
"Classic..."
Lord Dismiss Us (Phoenix fiction)
Lord Dismiss Us (Phoenix fiction)
"Really, really great novel which revolves around the lives of a group of mischievous students and their teachers at a boys' boarding school"

"Here's another one which will never go out of style. It's a coming of age story geared towards teens but older readers will also identify with its central themes. Loved it!"
Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You: A Novel
Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You: A Novel
"Worthwhile read. The protagonist is snarky, sarcastic and annoying but overall this was a good coming of age story"
Dream Boy: A Novel
Dream Boy: A Novel
"Heartbreaking novel about first love between two teenagers in the South. This novel is beautifully written and conjures up some very strong imagery towards the end"
Winter Birds: A Novel
Winter Birds: A Novel
"Not much gay content in this book but it's still a worthwhile read anyway. Tells the story of an introverted, hemophilic boy living in a very abusive home. The sequel is pretty good as well"
Comfort and Joy
Comfort and Joy
"Superb follow up to Winter Birds. Follows Winter Birds' protagonist as he begins a relationship with a closeted physician and deals with a chronic illness"
Dance on My Grave
Dance on My Grave
"Very amusing tale of first love and tragedy"

David and Jonathan (Point)
"Not sure whether this can be classified as a gay novel but I thought it was"
Thursday's Child
Thursday's Child
"Touching coming of age story about a young  boy who wants to study ballet. Good book for younger readers"
Night Kites
Night Kites
"Good novel for early teens. Tells the story of a young boy whose family is trying to come to grips with the fact that their eldest son has AIDS. Interwines humorous and touching moments well and isn't too heavy"
Am I Blue?: Coming Out from the Silence
Am I Blue?: Coming Out from the Silence
"Collection of gay themed short stories"
Boys Like Us: Gay Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories
Boys Like Us: Gay Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories

The Brothers Bishop
The Brothers Bishop
"Could hardly put this book down. Although Yates does revisit several/most of the same themes seen in 'Leave Myself Behind' this is still a very well written novel full of surprises"
Clay's Way: A Novel
Clay's Way: A Novel
"So funny your sides will hurt. Wonderful coming of age story set in Hawaii. I finished this one within a few days"
Letters to Montgomery Clift: A Novel (Working Classics)
Letters to Montgomery Clift: A Novel (Working Classics)
"An amazing first novel! The imaginary friend aspect reminded me of a Touch of Pink and the ending made me think of Tarnation. Novel went on a bit longer than I would have liked. I thought that it could have ended nicely either on page 202 or 232. The characters were more than likable and I can't wait for the author's next book. Read this one!"
Avoidance: A Novel
Avoidance: A Novel
"Michael Lowenthal (Mysterious Skin author Scott Heim's other half) brings us a novel filled with youthful obsession and temptation in the style of Mann's Death in Venice. I read this book within 3 days flat. It was very, very hard to put down and the only reason it took me three days to finish it was because I had to do things such as sleep, eat, go to class etc."
Call Me by Your Name: A Novel
Call Me by Your Name: A Novel
"Simply incredible... I really enjoyed this one although I didn't care for the fast forward ending. Read this one now!"
The Man without a Face
The Man without a Face
"Excellent coming of age novel. The movie's not half bad either altough most of the gay content -as little as there is- was removed"
Sea of Tranquillity
Sea of Tranquillity
"Very engaging novel about a spirited young man and the lives of those he touches over three decades"
War Against the Animals: A Novel
War Against the Animals: A Novel
"It takes about 250 pages before anything much actually starts to happen and even then not a whole lot goes on but this is still another interesting novel from a promising writer. If you enojoyed Russell's Sea of Tranquillity but weren't thrilled to death with The Salt Point then you'll probably find that this novel falls somewhere in between the two."
Wings in the Snow: A Novel
Wings in the Snow: A Novel
"Entertainig novel about a very busy doctor whose professional and personal life is turned upside down when his young daughter is suddenly dropped off on his doorstep"
A Place I've Never Been (Contemporary American Fiction)
A Place I've Never Been (Contemporary American Fiction)

"Excellent autobiography by the former king of the high dive"
The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant
The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant
