Before Night Falls by Reinaldo Arenas

One day, I got a bug up my ass (Southern expression) to look up some decent gay memoirs to read on Amazon.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Of course, the very first update would be Life of Pi. This consistently ranks as one of my favorite novels, if not my most favorite. I must admit, it’s been a while since I’ve picked it up, but I have read it multiple times since I first read it my sophomore year of high school. It’s certainly one of those ... Read More »
