Gripping Stories Of City Boys And Men Living - And Dying - For Their Outsider Sexuality; Doing their best to come to grips with being gay in a heavily Irish-Catholic working-class community - known for its fierce loyalty and strong, traditional religious ethic, the boys and men in these stories are caught in the crossfire of traditional values, Irish tragedy, and the inevitable intrusion of diversity. The result of this lethal mix is occasionally comic, often tragic, sometimes redemptive and sometimes disastrous, but always compelling.
