You are Not the One

This is a book of short stories by a young gay author, and I really enjoyed it. I don't think most of the stories will stay with me for a while, but the writing was fresh, quirky and fun.

One is the story of a woman who decides she needs to find a gay friend. Another tells of a man who gets involved with an escort while his wife is out of town. Another about a man who is milking disability payments for all they are worth.

Fun stuff and a recommended read. I am interested to see what else McIntyre can produce, and hope he goes uphill from here.

Grade: B

Oh fuck, C-genda. You are going to be bored and hate everything I write. Five months and counting and still not a short story of mine in sight. So pathetic.

Seriously, I am like the British novel you love to hate. The endless run-on sentence that gets on your last nerve. The Hours.
