In Eighner's world, it seems, almost everyone is gay or violently anti-gay. Enter Jim, the Queen's pawn sent to entrap Earl into yet another set of damaging poses. And some are both, including the Queen's archenemy, Brother Earlan Oklahoma radio preacher, with ties to the KKK, who has a propensity for preaching the gospel one- on-one nude with both women and men. Certain lewd photographs have for years held Earl in check, reigning in his homophobic fervor, but when the photos disappear, Brother Earl feels free to let loose the gay-bashers.

In 1993, Eighner's Travels with Lizbeth garnered numerous critical bouquets, praise that seems likely to be encored for this outre outing. That memoir of the author's years as a homeless struggling writer scrutinized the underbelly of Austin, Tex. The larky escapades chronicled here are set chiefly in a fanciful gay community that is labeled Austin but could as easily be Barrie's Neverland. Indeed, Eighner's wit is sprinkled about the proceedings like so much fairy dust.

His works include numerous story collections, a comic novel, a book about writing gay erotica, and a book of gay theory.

He is the author of numerous golden-age gay erotic stories, a novel, and a work of gay theory.

This book was great, I gifted it to my pastor and he loves it
Clever
I am rereading this novel for the 6th time, and I must admit that its over-the-top portrayals of gay life in Central Texas are too much to believe. Yet, this novel really shows that without the many parts of our gay community - the construction worker, the barfly, the imperial court, and the many other types - we would not be able to make a difference in our world.
I would recommend this novel for anyone who wants a simple laugh, a gay novel without the too-political overtones (though they are present at many times), or a chance to find a good drag name. As unbelievable it may have seemed at times, so many parts of it were the truth in our lives; gay people do form close knit communities and when we all get it at the same time, great and fantastic(al) things are bound to happen.
Goodman
Witty and erotic (without being the least bit graphic) this is a book that both provides a portrait of its times, while still offering insight and commentary into current-day gay like and politics. The more things change, it seems, the more they do indeed stay the same. Recommended for anyone who enjoys colorful characters and keen insights.
allegro
This is a truly funny book, set in a reality where drag queens rule territories like mafia kingpins. The characters are unforgettable, and the action is fast-paced. An enjoyable read.
