Queer fiction: still looking for amusing & literate
See more » Gay Themed
I keep hoping to discover more queer fiction to enjoy. When a guy called my used bookshop to say he had two boxes of gay novels to sell I had my hopes.
After he arrived and I'd unpacked the books my survey was as unhopeful as ever. There were the Family Problem, Coming Out, My Penis is the Center of the Universe, inescapably AIDS Novels.
Fluffy novels that looked as sleek and literate as a People magazine profile.
Some pornish fiction but whatever I think of thrusting pelvises in private life I just can't warm to erotica.
Always seems to be a split between artsy literary (meaning overripe execution of serious intent) and slick pop crap.
