    I read this book to examine for my thesis I enjoyed reading it but not to the extent where reading it for my thesis didn't feel somewhat like a chore But it is a very good memoir and very touching I like the essay about his dog a lot

    This was a book I pulled off the shelf at the library and read at random The essays were fine if a bit repetitive on some points but it was interesting to see a gay Jewish perspective from the early nineties and what did and didn't read as dated However I have very much added Raphael's mystery novels to my TBR considering we share a favorite author in Edith Wharton and I can't resist a book called The Edith Wharton Murders
