Howard Cruse (Ill.) and B. Taggart (Ed.) - Stuck Rubber Baby - Gay Fiction All Books by Howard Cruse and B. Taggart - Authors of : Stuck Rubber Baby
Paperback - 224 pages (November 2000) 
DC Comics; ISBN: 1563892553

"Gay Humour; Art and story combine powerfully in this lyrical tale of a young man caught in the maelstrom of the civil rights movement and the systematic homophobia of small-town America. Told in flashback, this is the story of Toland Polk, the son of an uneducated white carpenter who has grown up in the Southern town of Clayfield. It is the 1960s, a time of passionate beliefs and violent emotions, and Clayfield's citizens are divided in the fight over segregation. As Toland fights on the side of the civil rights activists, he slowly begins to realize and try to deny that he is gay. With a subtle yet intricate plot, and distinctively evocative illustrations, Stuck Rubber Baby is an unflinchingly honest look at one man's world of fears, dreams and prejudice."

Michael Thomas Ford - The Little Book of Neuroses: Ongoing Trials From My Queer Life - Gay Fiction  All Books by Michael Thomas Ford - Author of : The Little Book of Neuroses: Ongoing Trials From My Queer Life
Paperback - 188 pages (November 2001) 
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555836437

"Gay Humour; No one captures gay life in twenty-first century America with the unerring accuracy and zeal of Michael Thomas Ford. In this new collection he continues his winning tradition of simultaneously satirizing and celebrating his queer life. "These are modern, urban tales you will want to share with friends. A fresh voice, unafraid to tackle any subject and tickle, if not outright hit, below the belt. Just as sharp and petulant as ever, revealing new truths, reminding us of folks we know and making nearly everything just a little funnier"

Michael Thomas Ford - It's Not Mean If It's True - Gay Fiction All Books by Michael Thomas Ford - Authors of : It's Not Mean If It's True
Paperback - 248 pages 0 edition (September 1, 2000) 
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555835996

"Gay Humour; "Cranky, bemused, and extremely funny, Ford is brilliant," wrote Publishers Weekly. With two best-sellers and a Lambda Literary Award under his belt, Michael Thomas Ford is still cranky. Lucky for us. The author of Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me and That's Mr. Faggot to You returns with more skewed observations on the strange state of the queer union. As fans of his previous collections have happily discovered, little escapes his attention, and no topic is too controversial or sacred to be tackled. "The Condensed History of Gay Pride" is enough to send any politically correct gay leader shrieking into the streets. But Ford's favorite target remains himself. The fact that Cher's butt is more famous than he is really irks him, and he is willing to pretend to be straight in order to get help while shopping for clothes. He murdered his rival's "egg baby" in high school to secure a good grade, and he sacrificed his own to a chocolate cake. Whether he is equating becoming a man with buying a barbecue in the very moving "Rite of Passage" or considering the state of parenthood in the unforgettable "Cheaper by the Dozen," Ford continues to observe life in ways that help us more closely observe ourselves--while never never forgetting to make us laugh."

Michael Thomas Ford - Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me and Other Trials of My Queer Life - Gay Fiction All Books by Michael Thomas Ford - Author of : Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me and Other Trials of My Queer Life
Paperback - 256 pages (January 1998) 
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555834310

"Gay Humour; The short humorous essay is a form that few writers can master. Sure, pithy and funny are easy enough (if you are, in fact, pithy and funny), but the failings of most humorous essays come from a lack of seriousness. Humor is most effective when the writing articulates a clear, thoughtful point of view. The essays in Michael Thomas Ford's Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me & Other Trials from My Queer Life are perfect models of the form. Ford, who writes a syndicated column titled "My Queer Life," can muse on anything from Martha Stewart's manias to his devotion to Alec Baldwin's chest, from the elusive gay gene to right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity (in which he was raised), and he manages to make us laugh and sometimes even cry. His ironic view of a world that keeps threatening to be wonderful but never quite succeeds dovetails perfectly with his desire for world peace, freedom for gay people, and better sex. Witty, funny, and surprisingly moving, Michael Thomas Ford explains life to us and it actually begins to make sense."

Michael Thomas Ford - That's Mr Faggot to You - Gay Fiction  All Books by Michael Thomas Ford - Author of : That's Mr Faggot to You
Paperback - 248 pages (10 July, 1999) 
Alyson Publications; ISBN: 1555834965

"Gay Humour; Michael Thomas Ford garnered lots of laughs in 1998 with Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me and Other Trials from My Queer Life. The follow-up collection of pieces from his syndicated column, That's Mr. Faggot to You, continues Ford's exploration of contemporary gay life. In the title essay, reports of a teenager who successfully sued his school district for failing to prevent physical and mental abuse by his classmates prompts Ford to recall his own traumatic high school experiences and leads him to recognize that, years later, "he is happier, more successful, and a great deal more attractive" than his classmates. In other essays, he discusses the you-and-me-against-the-world relationship he has with his black Labrador, proposes a new line of Christian-friendly action figures (including a Jonah and the Whale Play Set, "appropriate for bath-time use or fun in the pool"), and even manages, despite his uncertainties, to offer an adolescent nephew dating advice (concluding that "guy problems were guy problems, regardless of who the person creating the dilemma was or how many holes she or he had"). That's Mr. Faggot to You is a humorous slice of contemporary gay life that's bound at least to elicit a smile from any reader."

Dennis Hensley - Misadventures In The (213) - Gay Fiction All Books by Dennis Hensley - Author of : Misadventures In The (213)
Paperback - 304 pages (July 1999) 
Rob Weisbach Book; ISBN: 0688171281

"Gay Humour; Dennis Hensley's Misadventures in the (213) is like the best kind of gossip--something you might hear from a friend who heard it from a friend who knows someone who does Tori Spelling's hair--and it's just bitchy enough to be very, very funny. Aspiring screenwriter Craig Clybourn arrives in Hollywood and is soon sucked into a series of giddy escapades involving a phone book full of B-list celebrities and enough scandal to keep the most rabid "Melrose Place" fan happy (including a shocking case of watermelon abuse!) Craig's adventures were originally published as a monthly serial in Detour magazine, and the episodic structure that this lends to the book only serves to keep the laughs coming thick and fast. From AIDS dance-athons to champagne glasses bearing Heather Locklear's lipstick, Misadventures in the (213), paints a picture of life in L.A. that is both bizarre and true to life, thanks to Hensley's unique insider perspective. It's a fluffy, sugar-dusted, chocolate-dipped dessert of a novel with a cherry on the top, and if you have a sense of humor and an open mind, its charms are irresistible. - Simon Leake (Amazon.com)"

Christian McLaughlin - Sex Toys of the Gods - Gay Fiction All Books by Christian McLaughlin - Author of : Sex Toys of the Gods
Paperback - 384 pages (October 1998) 
Plume; ISBN: 0452275199

"Gay Humour; Jason Dallin, straight (if you'll pardon the expression) from college in Ohio, is working at Video Xplosion rather than in films. But his luck turns when he is asked to house-sit wannabe but talentless actress Fawn Farrar's $10 million Beverly Hills estate. Capitalizing on his new position, he is soon befriended by his all-time favorite star, Marina Stetson, a Janis Joplin-esque singer just out of rehab and trying to make a comeback--and whose husband Jason secretly covets. Adding to the drama is Jason's ex-roommate, the incredibly pretentious Tricia Cox, whose struggles to make it as a talent agent take a wrong turn when she contracts her meal ticket, the talented and beautiful Violet Cyr, to a hip-hop sitcom called "Chillin' with Billy. When Billy turns out to be a talking goat, all hell breaks loose. The trashy, hip young heroes suffer through humiliations galore before they have a chance to make it--but not before Christian McLaughlin has laid bare in hilarious detail all the foibles and fumbles of a group of happening young people in La La Land in their shameless pursuit of fame, fortune--and sex."

David Rakoff - Fraud - Gay Fiction All Books by David Rakoff - Author of : Fraud
Paperback: 240 pages (April 23, 2002) 
Publisher: Broadway Books; ISBN: 0767906314

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Gay Humor; 2002 Lambda Award Winner for Humor - A frequent contributor to the New York Times magazine, Outside, Salon, and GQ, and a regular on Public Radio International's "This American Life, "David Rakoff's debut collection of essays is simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny and take-your-breath-away poignant.
David Rakoff is a fish out of water. Whether he finds himself on assignment climbing Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire donning a pair of Timberlands for his trek, only to realize with horror that "the shoes I wouldn't be caught dead in might actually turn out to be the shoes I am caught dead in." sitting quietly impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window...for a month, or musing on the unique predicament of being undetectably Canadian in New York City ("...what's more spicy than being Canadian, I ask you?"), Rakoff has a gift for exposing life's humour and pathos. Fraud takes us places even we didn't know we wanted to go: expeditions as varied as a search for elves in Iceland, a foray into soap opera acting, or contemplating the gin-soaked olive at the bottom of a martini glass.
With the sharpest of eyes, David Rakoff explores the odd and ordinary events of life, spotting what is unique, funny and absurd in the world around him. But for all its razor-sharp wit and snarky humor, Fraud is also, ultimately, an object lesson in not taking life, or oneself, too seriously."
