Plot
Short Fiction. A travel companion not in the sense of a map or guide to a particular locale, but in the sense of a friend with whom to while away pleasant hours away from the routines of daily life, this collection includes seventeen stories of travel, by seventeen of the U.S.'s most engaging contemporary gay male writers. Places visited range from Spain, Beijing and California to Israel, Mexico City, Russia and Indiana; the stories address homophobia, homoeroticism, sex, friendship, literature, race, nationality, and many other topics that open-eyed travellers encounter as they venture into the unfamiliar world. In the forward, Felice Picano suggests that "the voices here might be likened to those of friends sitting around a dinner table the night before your journey who provide you with insights and warnings that only later do you discover add infinitely to your excursion." Whether you are heading for excursions or not, these literary journeys are entertaining for the traveler and the reader in her or his own living room alike.
