The Scar Letters by Richard Alther – Guest Review by Richard Lipez

17740952 Excerpt:

“In this era full of headlines about the “normalization” of gay families, it’s nice to be entertainingly reminded that only a little more than a decade ago lesbians and gay men were bravely making strong, admirable families on their own without benefit of either clergy or the Supreme Court.  LGBT bonding is easier and fairer now that legalization has arrived in many locales, but the practice is really nothing new, as we’re reminded in Richard Alther’s graceful, big-hearted novel, set back in the 1990s, about a gay man in search of love, companionship and his own truest self.”
