John grimsley cause of death
Dream Boy by Jim GrimsleySome books dont deserve ratings. Not because theyre just that bad, but because a number cannot encapsulate everything found within their bindings. Dream Boy, for me, is one of those books - what I liked about it is also what prevented me from loving it fully.
First published over ten years ago at a succinct 195 pages, Dream Boy revolves around Nathan, a sophomore in high school who falls into a complex relationship with Roy, a senior. Nathan comes from a troubled home. His alcoholic father exemplifies sanctimony while his mother wisps around like a leaf. Roy gives him warmth, but at a cost - he doesnt want Nathan to tell anyone about their relationship.
Dream Boy is about young adults, but might not be for young adults. Grimsleys writing is concise and almost clinical, yet strongly sensual and violent. His brevity brings Nathans insecurities and abuse to life. On the surface this book may appear to be about a relationship between two boys, but it has a dark undercurrent and themes that can capture ones mind long after reading.
But the blunt nature of this book left me wanting more. Theres a difference between an author deciding to leave aspects of his work ambiguous and failing to explore certain characters, motifs, etc. The motives behind why characters would hurt one another or how some of their emotions escalated so quickly could have been further fleshed out.
I would recommend this to readers searching for an unusual gay love story with beautiful yet jagged writing. Save this one for later if youre searching for a happy ending - while it has nothing in common with sunshine or prancing unicorns, I promise that itll make you think.
