In this less than candid memoir, the author chronicles how a black homosexual from Little Rock--himself--grew up to be a successful and well-adjusted writer. He aims, says he, to give hope to youth suffering from prejudice and low self-esteem. Judging by the writing, he seems more interested in telling his story than in making it interesting or relevant to his audience. Richard Allen reads with gentle sympathy. His velvet baritone is easy on the ears though one wishes he had more finesse and grace. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
