Summary, etc.:
"True Love" is an eclectic collection of short stories about growing up gay in America and searching for lasting companionship. From hidden secrets, closely held crushes, lifelong commitment and casual sex, "True Love" explores the broad spectrum of gay relationships in urban 21st Century life. The stories range from a young boy's preference for his sister's frilly Christmas gifts in "A Christmas Story", a pair of adolescent boys discovering the first pangs of love and rejection in "Going Gay" , the strained relationship between a college student and his uncle when their past returns to haunt them in "History", lasting, loving relationships between older men in "Sunday" hurt feelings of betrayal after casual sex in "He Was Perfect", a discovery of why we commit our lives to each other in "Staying Together" and that magic moment in a teen-ager's life when Romeo truly walks out of the spotlight and into your arms in "A Little Drama". Sensual, tender, funny, quirky, and often touching, "True Love" observes the realities of desperate people who will sometimes do hurtful things in search of true love, ones who have been scarred by the journey and those who have truly found the one they have been searching for.
