HIS STEADFAST LOVE & Other Stories

BK214381

New product

By Paul Brownsey. Often playful, Scottish author Paul Brownsey’s short stories cast an imaginative eye on gay life – but, make no mistake, they deal with the life most gay men will recognise, in which meeting lovers and sustaining relationships go alongside the uneasy terrain of acceptance. In the world of Paul Brownsey, God is a camp old queen trying to split up a gay couple. Judy Garland did not die in 1969 and instead ended up wowing her fellow residents in a Scottish care home on karaoke night. After a one-night stand, two men maintain a distant awareness of each other’s lives for a quarter of a century and then face the question: are we in love?
