This novel was written in 1986, and it has the feel of being dated. It is, however, still a well-written and readable novel about the coming out of a young gay man at the same time as his closeted father. My one big complaint: the character of Jerene is totally superfluous.

While at times this feels just a tad bit dated, the characters are wonderfully written and feel very much alive.

Wonderful novel about family... what we know and what we choose to ignore.

I found it to be a rather slow read, but it had its moments where it really grabbed your attention.
