My Most Excellent Year
Kluger, Steve. My Most Excellent Year. New York: Penguin Group, 2008.
I was intrigued when I started reading this book, intrigued, because one of the main characters was described by his friends and family as "gay, but he doesn't know it yet." I found it interesting that a character could be out to everyone but himself, and I wanted to see how this story would progress. Unfortunately, there is little narrative in this book; the story is mostly told in emails, texts, and instant messages, so it is very difficult to follow. I tried, I really did, but I couldn't finish it.
