Praise for the writings of Jameson Currier

 

“Currier is adept at drawing a fine line between the erotic and the tragic, and at telling stories that ‘although personal, are also the stories of our community.’ "

The New York Times Book Review

“Jameson Currier’s kind of fiction can recreate reality more accurately than a cinema verité account of our daily lives.”

The Washington Post Book World

“As a writer, Currier should be lauded for his creative decision to avoid the all-too-common formulaic trappings of most current novels written for and about gay men.”

Lambda Literary

 

“A writer who consistently surprises and delights, Currier’s dynamism will surely carry his literary career to higher heights.”

Bay Area Reporter

 

“The breadth of Currier’s personal experience is evident in his writing, which is moving without resorting to melodrama, familiar without feeling clichéd.”

Windy City Times
