Have you any queer literature that you loved or would recommend to others? I try to read quite a bit of queer fiction in proportion to the other books I read and would love to know what you guys have loved. Fiction or otherwise. A few of mine: Blood Relatives by Stevan Alcock. A boy growing up in punk-era Leeds, documented alongside the Yorkshire Ripper's attacks. It's all in Yorkshire dialect and it's completely brilliant. How Many Miles to Babylon? by Jennifer Johnston. Jennifer Johnston isn't a queer writer and the book doesn't advertise itself as a gay novel, but it's about two boys from different backgrounds growing up alongside one another in eastern Ireland and eventually fighting in WWI. The description doesn't do it justice really, but her writing is spare and beautiful and her reputation as one of the great modern Irish writers is justified. Guapa by Saleem Haddad A gay man living in an Arab country trying to maintain his life as the world is in turmoil around him. I don't know if some of you have read this or not, but I adored it. The Absolutist by John Boyne Boyne's writing goes so far beyond The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. I find some of his novels quite sensational (addictive but almost ludicrous), but this is easily my favourite. A man visiting the home of his dead wartime lover in Norwich juxtaposed with their time at war.
