    In this deeply funny (and, no kidding, wise and poignant) book, Rakoff examines the realities of our sunny, gosh­ everyone-can-be-a-star contemporary culture and finds that, pretty much as a universal rule, the best is not yet to come, adversity will triumph, justice will not be served, and your dreams won’t come true. The book ranges from the personal to the universal, combining stories from Rakoff’s reporting and accounts of his own experi­ences....

    When I heard of David's passing, it was a like a very close friend of mine had died. I never met him, but I knew him so well through his books. His essays take you along on the journey of his life with all its laughter, tears and ironies. Reading his own words, he takes you inside his head, and in this book, through his struggle with cancer that took his life. Don't be afraid to make David your friend, to laugh and cry with him as he exposes the absurdities of our culture with wit and insight. Read his works and he will always be with you.

    This is the first in a gay mystery series, the Kyle Callahan Mysteries. Who killed Teddy the handyman - if anyone killed him at all? Kyle and his life partner Danny Durban live in New York City, where murder never seems to be more than a subway stop away. In this first story, they head to Pride Lodge, their favorite getaway from the City, over what they expect to be a festive Halloween weekend. What they find instead is a web of murder, deceit, and revenge served cold as a knife blade

    Story

    I loved it! This is a stand out because unlike other gay mysteries, the folks at Pride Lodge are LGBT people who are over the age of 50. The author captures this phase of LGBT life in a very engaging and insightful way and with a great deal of wit and humour. Pride Lodge becomes a very real place -- I have even had a dream about it. The second in the series is about to become an audiobook an I can't wait.
