A Passionate Engagement is a coming-of-age story, a boy-meets-boy story, and a political story all at once. At times funny and poignant, the book shows how love can fuel a great social movement.
Winner of the Violet Quill Award for Best New Gay Fiction. The spark of these stories comes from mixing gay and straight worlds. The author’s compassionate eye is clearly at work as he examines the pains and joys, the tensions and laughter encountered by human beings in everyday life.
