Back in the 1980s when the LGBTQ community was severely marginalized. Back when AIDS was called GRID (Gay Related Immune Deficiency). Dustin Thomas struggled with his identity. Unbeknownst to him the place his parents likened with Sodom would be the beginning of his journey to understand his true self. At the age of 20, he gained the courage to walk through those doors. This would lay the foundation for the relationship he would later have with Gauge Paulson. How will they survive with only their restored 1949 Indian Motorcycle and hope? How will they navigate their complexity of their relationship? Will their Fort Lauderdale past follow them down the California Coast?
This book tells a very important story in the history of the LGBTQ community. There is a lot that people do not know about the struggle before members of the community could openly fight for their liberation. If for nothing else, read this book to truly understand the struggle. It provides an accurate albeit bleak picture of what life was like for the LGBTQ community back in the 1980s as well; as the lengths they had to go to simply exist in the society. The sheer weight of stigma that weighed on them then.
This is a very well written book. The style of writing is fitting for a story of this intensity and magnitude. It is a moving tale. It is emotive and gut wrenching. You find yourself rooting for young Dustin to overcome all the hurdles on his path.
The brilliant presentation and language mastery are to credit for the literary aesthetics of this book. It is elegant with the luster of polished silver in the morning sun. The grammar is spotless with a flair that is just right, never feeling inappropriate for the tragic undertone of the story. The author has an uncanny ability to create a full dimensional mental picture with both his artistic use of language and rendering a unique tone to his writing.
This is a very informative book. There is a story to enjoy, sure but at the core of it is a lesson for human kind. At the end of it all you wonder why human beings cannot coexist in peace without judgement and creation of restrictive societal codes. What would really happen if everyone was accepted just as they were as long as they were not hurting others? This book is thought provoking in this way. You will also learn that love truly is powerful; against ignorance and debilitating superiority complexes.
Five stars out of five for this book. The author was new on the scene when he wrote this book. He however broke in with a powerfully poignant book. This book tells an important story. This book tells a necessary story. This book tells a story that many need to hear. That it is so well written and so brilliantly delivered is simply the cherry.
