About this product
- DescriptionThere are his aging parents, whose disagreements sharpen as their health declines; and his beloved brother, lost tragically to AIDS; and his long-term boyfriend always present, but always kept at a distance. There is also the revelatory, joyful music of the B-52s, Chase s sexual confusion in his twenties, and more recently, the mysterious appearance in his luggage of weird objects from Iran the year his mother died In the midst of all this is Chase s singular voice incisive, wry, confiding, by turns cool or emotional, always engaging The way this book is written in pitch-perfect fragments is crucial to Chase s deeper message: that we experience and remember in short bursts of insight, terror, comedy, and love. As ambitious in its form as it is in its radical candor, The Tooth Fairy is the rare memoir that can truly claim to rethink the genre.
