Secret Things by Robert Thomson
A twelve step meeting for anal retentives gets out of control... a cabaret performer attempts to conquer his fear of relationships by breaking up with his boyfriend... how to find love at the YMCA... the last glimpses of life as seen by a dying man... a therapist and her patient enter into an almost-incestuous-lesbian-love affair... the candid monologue of a sex addict... fantasy and fear in the age of despair... the first awareness of sexuality in a young boy...
Robert Thomson's Secret Things is a contemporary and engaging collection of short fiction. With a cast of unusual characters and often hysterical situations, this book of memorable stories crosses the boundaries of gay fiction and speaks to a wide audience about the search of love, the fear of intimacy, the adoption triangle and many other subjects. Often ironic and always revealing, Secret Things, is about the hidden aspects of everyday people and how lies have changed their lives.
