What an incredible book that really captures the sense of both disconnection and connection Simon s voice captured me immediately and there was something about the flatness the lack of affect that heightened the emotions His observations and relationships made the story resonate with me when I first read it 3 years ago and still makes me shiver I marked this as two stars which they translate to it was ok because i had a hard time getting through it this is one of those smart seeming books where you re supposed to think and stuff i was at my library and i saw multiple copies of this book all over the new book section with so many copies it must be great so I stuffed it in my bag without really looking and brought it home Later When I Started Reading It I when i started reading it i out it s the story of a guy in NYC who is an escort he s dealing with opening up his emotions both to love and friends and a serious bout of gay bashing going on at the time The main character and his roommate had such sad lives Not because he was an escort that s whatever but ust in general i dunno smart people might get out of this than i did 35 stars This book had elements of excellence It tells the first person story of Simon a twenty something young man who hustles and files medical records And at first both The Chicken Qabalah of Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford jobs give him something besides money At one point he reveals that he started hustling by accident while still living at home and since sex was the way he defined himself it seemed logical And yet he puts very few boundaries on the sex He lists all the things he s willing to do and the list begins very vanilla with blowob active blow ob passive But somewhere in there you see pain bad pain very bad painblindfold gag chains whipping but not because he likes those things
only because he gives his clients whatever they because he gives his clients whatever they willing to pay for And as you watch him move through his days you see that and he goes somewhere else during sex It s a ob and one he doesn t like much any although he doesn t let himself think about that The book follows him through traumas and changes and into a relationship he isn t paid for and you come to care about him The problem I had was that everyone in. In his evocative and mesmerizing debut novel Lee Houck depicts a contemporary Manhattan thrumming with sex and violence as seen through the eyes of Simon a twenty something part time hustler with a cadre of loyal sometimes floundering friends As Simon grows increasingly involved with a gorgeous guileless client named Aiden he tries to navigate a path to fulfil.
