Considering I got the book for free from a stall at Europride and it's cover was particularly uninspiring I was rather taken aback to be quite impressed with the story. Peter Mitchell certainly draws some inspiration from the style of A Picture of Dorian Gray which, in my opinion, is not a bad place to start.
The story gives the reader some fabulous insights into different aspects of the gay rights movement, travel, and AIDS. Oliver is a particularly easy to like character and travelling with him as he explores life to the full is a pleasure. It's a short, sharp and sweet little book to see you through an afternoon. And although you'll probably guess the ending it's still totally zany enough to be interesting.
If you'd like to know how to buy it let me know and I'll email you the address to write to... you won't be disappointed.
Got the song "The Internet is for porn" from Avenue Q stuck in my head!
