CAVEAT LECTOR! 'When explicit sex is combined with a lot of preposterous chatter, it then becomes unendurable, an affront, to the patience and intelligence of the reader.' That is an edited statement from a critique of my, then newly published, favorite of favorites, "Stranger in a Strange Land".
Attorney Jeffrey G. Adams feels antsy even though life in Chicago is actually going very well. Still, going back home to Texas for the holidays after almost three years away feels like the right thing to do. Maybe the change of scenery and a chance to visit with family and friends will settle his disquiet. But, maybe the change he really needs is not a physical change at all. Maybe the change Jeff really needs is a Change of Heart.
Once back home, he'll learn that the best "life’s lessons" are almost always a shared experience.
Gordy Belser is coming home, to small-town Texas. This causes John Grant to reflect on his life. Could he have kept Gordy from leaving in the first place? If he had, would they still be lovers? Seems John is not happy with the choices he has made. Being gay was not even considered until he met Wylie; college roommate and eventually his best friend. How they deal with having gay sex is not the best way. But it worked for them. Didn't it?
