    In Hanged Man we are thrown immediately into the action A dance marathon is going on that cruel exploitative event where desperate couples danced for the chance of money and perhaps a little celebrity is going on but the suffering of the dancers are–suitable to the times–almost ignored their very bodies treated like cattle along the lines of They Shoot Horses Don’t They? It’s clear we are in the DepressionRay the protagonist is a hard bitten character from the east coast and his clipped mobster thoughts and speech contrast starkly with the sunshine and oyster sheds and liberal aspects of the west He comes across as a tight ball of energy calm on the surface but lethal beneath it’s a wonderful juxtaposition to the palm trees and boardwalks of the sea side townI’ve been impressed with Parhelion’s writing before and once again–although the novella didn’t grab me in the same way that Peridot did–there are sections of prose which left me breathless and wishing with evil jealous pain that I’d thought of just that phrase Your mileage may vary but I firmly believe that Parhelion is underrated and one of the best writers of gay fiction around at the momentHer talent lies in creating a time and place so skilfully that you don’t need vast swathes of descriptive text to anchor you there Just brief touches mention of skee ball machines a cashier’s cage and you are firmly inside Ray’s slot machine joint a touch of flaking paint and the feel of warm wood and you are on the boardwalk It’s difficult to create such a cinematic feel with a paucity of prose but Parhelion does it beautifully The dialogue is some of the best I’ve read in gay fiction too Awkward and witty in turns sentences and silence which mean everything–or nothing Men who talk for talking’s sake when they are trying to say something else And the sex? Well it made me shift in my chair if you get my driftAs for the cover? I can’t ignore it I’ve commented on these peculiar covers that Toruere use before and frankly I can’t see what they were thinking Surely to goodness only someone who knew Parhelion’s work from previous stories would buy a book with a cover that looks like it should be stuck on a fridgeBut don’t judge a book by its cover Go and discover Parhelion for yourself then tell all your friends

    Setting in California in 1935 the book has the atmosphere of a old classic movie in black and white or to recall something recent of LA Confidential Ray was a night club manager in New York; he was THE good guy the nice face of the real owner a mafia boss Ray was not an unwilling pawn of his boss' play he knew well what it was happening but he turned his shoulders to not see what he didn't want to see At the club he was friendly with Charlie a man who said himself to be an accountant but that Ray knew well was an FBI agent; but Charlie had his reason to freuent Ray's club other than the illicit alcohol and that reason was Robin So Ray knew Charlie's secret and Charlie didn't unveil Ray's ones When Robin was killed and Charlie couldn't do nothing to vengeance his lover again Ray turned his shoulders to the men who decided to take on the club's propriety and eliminate Ray's boss in this way without actually doing nothing Ray avenged Robin's deathThree years later Ray is uietly living in California but someone is bent upon to disturb his peace And Charlie reappears he is in debt with Ray and maybe he is also interested in something And Ray who three years before was still fighting with his strange feelings maybe now is ready to read in the right way Charlie's friendship offerThe story is simple in the plot but very nice in the two characters There are no conflicts between Charlie and Ray almost as both of them arrived to the conclusion that being together is unavoidable Obviously they can't be together in the open but a buddy friendship on the outside can hide something different inside the wall of their house Again Ray and Charles have a mutual agreement what happens between them remains between them I do a favour to you and you do a favour to me; there are few smoochy moments Ray and Charles' relationship is direct and frankly there is no need to wooing but this doesn't mean that there is no tenderness between them it's only that all the tenderness is restricted inside the bedroom's wallshttpwwwdpB000VYX7SC?
