About this product
- DescriptionThe invative series that consistently gives unapologetic, unashamed voice to the contemporary gay male writer. <i>The Advocate</i> The fifth volume in the acclaimed <i>Men on Men</i> series brings readers 20 new stories that pulse with humor, energy, and eroticism, as they explore the tender, often painful truths of our lives. Gay writers have stepped out in front on the contemporary literary scene, and so the stories in this collection refuse to conform, be politically correct, or embrace conventions. The coming out tale appears in the works of Adam Klein, Joshua David, and Michael Lowenthal, but longer confessional, longer familiar, each story will shock and surprise. D. Lee Williams s Toilet Training breaks taboos with its portrayal of exploitation, anger, and revenge set in a public men s room. The irresistibly sensual combination of chocolate and sex permeates a wickedly funny tale of seduction in Brian Kirkpatrick s Hot Chocolate Drops. And Paul Bonin-Rodriguez establishes himself as a writer to be watched with his poignant, hilarious, and bawdy story of gay love at a Texas Dairy Queen. Again breaking fresh ground with both established and first time authors of extraordinary talent, <i>Men on Men 5</i> addresses issues that are immediate and real and dares to be naughty, sexy, and fun. This is the collection that once again sets the standard for stimulating, provocative, uncommon prose: t just remarkable gay fiction, but remarkable American writing.
