Our readers especially
appreciated the humor and sensitivity of language
in this work.
With its appeals to queer
history, it becomes a call for
queer couples to appreciate the beauty of past love, but above all to forge their own independent paths forward, unconstrained by what has been done before.
I was immediately taken
by the subject matter, the unique and vivid characters, and the maturity of
the writing. This is an extraordinary young artist.
