Pianist Tom Graves witnesses a car crashing into a telephone box. Within is an injured man whose wallet identifies him as Michael McMullen-and a large amount of cash which Tom absconds with, intending to hand this in to the police. Sex with Will, the assistant from the store beneath his flat, delays him-by which time he finds out the man in the car was an impostor who has discharged himself from hospital. When the real McMullen and his wife are found dead, Tom and his actor lover, Jeff, heading for Dublin-he is obsessed with finding the injured man-and when Jeff is recalled to the set, Tom's curiosity gets him involved in a murder enquiry. Despite the danger, his clothes do not stay on for long. When held hostage, such is his charm-along with his 6 foot 3 inch frame and other attributes-that he beds his captor, Richard O'Hara, the man who crashed the car. He also gets it on with horse-hung hotel receptionist Manuel, not what he seems-and with Ben, the cop investigating the case. WARNING: contains adult material of a sexual nature.

In this “toughly courageous, unflinching, and unapologetic” (O, The Oprah Magazine) debut collection, Curtis Dawkins, an MFA graduate and convicted murderer serving life without parole, “takes us inside the worlds of prison and prisoners with stories that dazzle with their humor and insight, even as they describe a harsh and barren existence” (Publishers Weekly). In Curtis Dawkins’s first short story collection, longlisted for the 2018 Andrew Carnegie Medal, he offers a window into prison life through the eyes of his narrators and their cellmates. Dawkins reveals the idiosyncrasies, tedium, and desperation of long-term incarceration—he describes men who struggle to keep their souls alive despite the challenges they face. In “A Human Number,” a man collect-calls strangers just to hear the sounds of the outside world. In “573543,” an inmate recalls his descent into addiction as his prison softball team gears up for an annual tournament. In “Leche Quemada,” an inmate is released and finds freedom to be complex and baffling. Dawkins’s stories are funny and sad, filled with unforgettable detail—the barter system based on calligraphy-ink tattoos, handmade cards, and cigarettes; a single dandelion smuggled in from the rec yard; candy made from powdered milk, water, sugar, and hot sauce. His characters are nuanced and sympathetic, despite their obvious flaws. The Graybar Hotel is “well-written and worth reading for Dawkins’s craft and insight, but it’s also an occasion to consider an industry that has little to do with rehabilitation, and that makes it nearly impossible for its participants to recuperate their lives” (Chicago Tribune). Dawkins is an extraordinary writer with a knack for metaphor who gives voice to the experience of perhaps the most overlooked members of our society. “His prison stories are insightful and well written, and they ring true. Dawkins possesses the acquired wisdom of a man who’s been there, done that and, unfortunately, is staying there” (Houston Chronicle).

Classical pianist Tom Graves witnesses a car crashing into a telephone box. Inside the vehicle is a badly injured man whose wallet identifies him as Michael McMullen-and a large amount of cash which Tom absconds with, intending to hand this in to the police. Unexpected fun with Will, the assistant from the store beneath his flat, prevents him from doing this-by which time he finds out the man in the car was an impostor who has discharged himself from hospital. When the real McMullen and his wife are found dead, Tom and his soap-star lover, Jeff, head for Dublin because Tom has become obsessed with finding the injured man. When Jeff is recalled to the set, Tom's curiosity gets him involved in a murder enquiry. Despite the danger, his clothes do not stay on for long. When bashed and held hostage, such is his charm-along with his 6 foot 3 inch frame and other attributes-that he beds his captor, Richard O'Hara, the man who crashed the car. He also gets it on with the sexy hotel receptionist Manuel, who may not be what he seems-and with Ben, the cop investigating the case. And even when his ordeal is over, Tom cannot resist returning to Ireland for more of the same! WARNING: This story contains adult material of a sexual nature.

Women And Gay Men In The Postwar Period

Friendships between women and gay men captivated the American media in the opening decade of the 21st century. John Portmann places this curious phenomenon in its historical context, examining the changing social attitudes towards gay men in the postwar period and how their relationships with women have been portrayed in the media. As women and gay men both struggled toward social equality in the late 20th century, some women understood that defending gay men ? who were often accused of effeminacy ? was in their best interest. Joining forces carried both political and personal implications. Straight women used their influence with men to prevent bullying and combat homophobia. Beyond the bureaucratic fray, women found themselves in transformed roles with respect to gay men ? as their mothers, sisters, daughters, caregivers, spouses, voters, employers and best friends. In the midst of social hostility to gay men during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s, a significant number of gay women volunteered to comfort the afflicted and fight reigning sexual values. Famous women such as Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand threw their support behind a detested minority, while countless ordinary women did the same across America. Portmann celebrates not only women who made the headlines but also those who did not. Looking at the links between the women's liberation and gay rights movements, and filled with concrete examples of personal and political relationships between straight women and gay men, Women and Gay Men in the Postwar Period is an engaging and accessible study which will be of interest to students and scholars of 20th- and 21st century social and gender history.

Former high school teacher Matt Brandon is stuck in a rut: unemployed, recently divorced, living on a run-down council estate, and missing his lusty young rugger captain lover, Jack Adams, who seduced him as an 18-year-old student four years ago. When Matt meets fellow loner, Aussie bad-boy Stuart Donovan, the pair embark on a sexual adventure which sees their lives change for ever. Matt falls for drop-dead gorgeous renowned French operatic tenor Logan Thomas, while Stuart becomes involved with closeted tennis ace Jeremy Grant.
