About this author

Mel Bossa is the author of Split and In His Secret Life, both Lambda Award finalists, as well as numerous other books and short stories. She lives in Montreal's gay village where she volunteers for a crisis center. As a queer Franco-Italian feminist raised in a patriarchal family, she's felt like the Other for a great part of her life and finds peace in dreaming up worlds where grace wins over fear.

NO WORDS.

Yet.

I have to review this, if only to gather my thoughts on this divine text. Homer, I love you. Hector, I will never forget you. Achillles and Patrocle, you're sexy together and I will one day write a story inspired by you two.

“O'Reilly, I've been running from the worst of myself all my life, and now it looks like the best of me just caught up.”
Mel Bossa, Split

“O'Reilly, happiness does eventually come, it just needs a lot of foreplay, that's all."

And what better lover could happiness find?”
Mel Bossa, Split

“There is no sense in trying to be good, hoping to find myself back in God's grace, when Nick's skin makes heaven seem like a flooded trailer park.”
Mel Bossa, Split

“You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.”
Woody Allen

“What I'm saying might be profane, but it's also profound.”
Richard Pryor, Pryor Convictions: and Other Life Sentences

“The urge for destruction is also a creative urge!”
Mikhail Bakunin

“Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills but you work hard for thirty five years and you pay it back and then one day you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, you have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth and drool but you go into rehabilitation and regain the power to walk and the power to talk and then one day you step off a curb at Sixty-seventh Street, and BANG you get hit by a city bus and then you die. Maybe”
Denis Leary

“It wasn't until I started reading and found books they wouldn't let us read in school that I discovered you could be insane and happy and have a good life without being like everybody else.”
John Waters
