From the grittiness of prowling the parks for anonymous tricks, from selling himself out to a rich bitch who abuses him not as a man but as a mere specimen of men, Sometimes arises and sometimes lovin' is indeed hurtful. In it, Blaine Shirer - homely, gay, and religious - arises from doing obeisance at the hairy legs of men who never loved him, whose names he never bothers to learn. In it, Robert Newel - handsome, straight, and troubled - never overcomes his latent fears. But together, they make a home and celebrate the negligible milestones of Bob's life, of Blaine's, and of the life they share together. Sometimes extols love, even if it isn't packaged in the way we think it should be. In this world, things sometimes happen leaving us no choice but to meet the demands of love. And sometimes, the state thinks it must utter the last word. Sometimes is a novel of heart. Extra-natural elements weave through its grit. A blue glow lightens a shabby room, and there is the scent of starched house dresses and ironing boards. Three-legged dogs talk and whales swim through the stars. Sometimes is - in essence - a love song. A mainstream novel with gay theme, it's dramatic and a good read.
