Confessions of a Gay Curmudgeon

GET IT HERE!
Confessions of a Gay Curmudgeon recounts the adventures of Viktor, a fifty-year-old gay man in New York City trying to get back into the land of the living after the breakup of a twelve-year relationship.
Complaining into his digital diary, Viktor wrestles with negotiating the dating scene, dealing with new corporate bosses, and his friends’ stories of sexual misadventures and taking him to places to meet eligible new partners who he doesn’t find very eligible at all.
Trying to distance himself from his family and immigrant roots to build a new life, he finds it easier said than done. And even his therapist doesn’t seem to understand him. But perhaps most important, his former lover, Gio, is on his mind.
Funny and moving, the novel examines the lives of a group of middle-aged gay men, exploring new facets of their sexuality while dealing with all the changes middle age brings.
This was an interesting read. Sometimes funny, sometimes deeply moving, and sometimes disturbing.
Even though I am considered middle aged, I did not feel a very good connection to this character. That being said, there were others who I totally could relate to.
Of course, the LOL moments made the whole thing worth it!
Overall an enjoyable read that I recommend!
I was given a review copy for my honest opinion.
