    There were a lot of things I love about this book And there were other things I hated I loved the gritty realism of it, I loved the nostalgia, I loved the honest look back at the fear of AIDS in the early nineties, and it made me feel good to read because of how far I feel we ve come But it also felt UNREAL, because of course, not being gay, not being male, and still being too young in the 1990s to understand all that, I have no idea how far we ve REALLY come This is where it gets per...

    Toby s Lie didn t initially capture my interest based on its back cover summary I wasn t that interested in the plot, but I m currently on a quest to read all the fiction books in my Queer Centre s library, so I picked it up However, I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns of the story You watch a sort of absurd, fantastical plot unfold, with a love story, lies and fantasies, etc The characters are initially unsympathetic, but they all grew on me, especially Toby and his one eyed Toby s Lie didn t initially capture my interest based on its back cover summary I wasn t that interested in the plot, but I m currently on a quest to read all the fiction books in my Queer Centre s library, so I picked it up However, I was ple...
