Rick Bettencourt steps into an enlarging spotlight of fellow LGBT writers – a circle stage front that includes such names as David Sedaris, Edmund White, Felice Picano, Robert Rodi, Michael Cunningham, David Leavitt, Alan Hollinghurst, Colm Tóibín, et al– and comes on very strong with this new book.
Grady Harp, the reviewer, went on to say:
Bettencourt understands character creation and in this book he has given us at least two characters in Timothy Benton and Javier Rodriquez who are so memorable that they will likely achieve ‘Holden Caulfield’ status. The book is both hilarious funny, gently touching, and very perceptive in the way the author examines personality development and evolvement.
