In just a few days I’ll be taking an extended break from work. I plan on visiting my local library or possibly Calamus Bookstore in Boston’s Leather District to nab a few gay themed novels, and I’m curious if you have any to suggest.
To be fair, I’ll list a few novels that I’ve enjoyed to both give you an idea of what I like and to share in case you too are looking for something to read.
Heyday by Michael Butler – takes place during prohibition in NYC and is fraught with funny scenerios
Call me by your name by Andre Aciman – is about a teenager’s first love and is beautifully written
How I paid for college by Marc Acito – an hilarious story that tracks the adventures of a NJ H.S. senior
Where the boys are by William Mann – Actually I’ve enjoyed all his books
My blue heaven by Joe Keenan – I’ve enjoyed this funny series as well
The books listed above are not the only gay fiction I’ve read, but it is meant to serve as a sort of guide or insight into the books I’ve enjoyed. I also like and have read a number of books from local authors including Johnny Diaz, Michael Thomas Ford, and J.G. Hayes to mention a few. I should say that my interest in authors extends beyond my hometown’s city limits so please share your suggestions. I’m quite open and looking forward to hearing from you.
