Joy

Queer

The Big Gay Musical

Clever, eye catching, funny with very talented performers.

It is a musical, so we're already half way there. The actors/dancers/singers topped the book as it is in most musicals.

Mary Ann in Autumn

Armistead Maupin

Comfort food and gourmet comfort food at that. Once again Maupin creates a world both familiar and larger than life with simple phrasing and brilliant compilation.

Bow Grip

Ivan E Coyote

Ivan E Coyote

Bow Grip is fascinating; a male protagonist learning to cope after his wife leaves him for another woman written by a transgendered author. Well written with fully drawn characters and a vocabulary that expresses sensitivity without being trite,

The Moonlit Earth

Christopher Rice

Christopher Rice

There is more confidence and maturity in Mr. Rice's writing with each new book. The Moonlit Earth does not disappoint in that regard. It is a fast paced thriller built around news and topical events.

More of This World or Maybe Another

Barb Johnson

Barb Johnson

"There's real trouble in the world. The kind that can't be fixed. The kind we lie awake keeping vigil against. Love is not trouble. It is all we have to light our days..."

Elena Undone

When Night Is Falling

Elena Undone begs comparison with Patricia Rozema's When Night Is Falling which is much better and features a circus.

The Pastors' wives, Pascale Bussieres in When Night Is Falling and Necar Zadegan in Elena Undone, are both exceedingly beautiful and married.

In a Strange Room

I completely understand why Damon Galgut's novel was Booker Prize nominated, but my psyche couldn't take that much sorrow and loneliness.

The book is divided into 3 parts: 1. The Stranger, 2. The Lover, 3. The Guardian. After reading The Stranger, I was looking forward to The Lover, but it was as lonely a read as I've ever experienced. I attempted to go on to The Guardian, but the schizophrenic blues were just too much for me.

Puccini for Beginners (2006)

I should have included Puccini for Beginners in my Best of Decade list earlier this year. It is one of the best representatives of English language lesbian films of the decade. Drifting Flowers would be my choice for Foreign Language lesbian film for the decade.

Kids Are All Right

Nic and Jules

I thoroughly enjoyed The Kids Are All Right, even though I didn't expect to like it.

The buzz about the lapse into heterosexuality made me dubious, but damn, it was so realistic and so human that I didn't get disgusted. Every time Jules (Julianne Moore) said "I'm gay!", I would laugh. Jules was such a dork and wonderfully portrayed by Moore.
