    Paperback☆ Afterlife Epub ñ afterlife mobile, Afterlife PDFEPUBI am immediately distrustful of a novel in which its central character doesn't really have to worry about money or work and ends up with someone richer and attractive than anyone who'll ever read this blog This man named Mark in this novel is there in the opening scene Mark's in television says Steven our protagonist Major heartthrob Eats gorgeous men for breakfast 10 And because this is a gay novel it's clear to everyone that we'll need to see this man naked and hopefully let our stand in have hot sex with him And lo And beholdWhat Afterlife is then immediately is a fa

    Paperback☆ Afterlife Epub ñ afterlife mobile, Afterlife PDFEPUBI enjoyed Monette's memoir Becoming a Man and this one appeared on a lot of classic ueer lit lists though I found it disappointing It feels like writing not authentic or particularly natural although there was enough to keep me interested There are a ton of useless adverbs in this writing I think at one point someone notices insignificantly The dark matter of the book the plague itself feels like a plot device than an affliction to be mulled over even in the final chapters The three main characters share the trauma of having lost partners and knowing

    Paperback☆ Afterlife Epub ñ afterlife mobile, Afterlife PDFEPUBI'm so conflicted about this book On one hand Afterlife is written so beautifully and honestly and some of the passages are exuisite in their pathos and uiet relatability And then on the other hand i couldn't shake the feeling that Afterlife was either a gay Lifetime film or the precursor to the truly abysmal A Little Life I found it almost offensive that literally every main male character was dying from AIDS; I get that in the time period that the book was set the crisis was still in it's first wave but to have all 5 men afflicted with AIDS was a little too unbelievable And of course there were the usual tropes and stereotypes that come part and parcel with literary gay fiction Everyone is promiscuous but one is especially slutty; vague campy references to Old Hollywood; the endless obsession with physical appearance So on and so forth In the end I appreciate what Afterlife was attempting to do but honestly it would be absolutely refreshing to read some LGBT literary fictio
