Three Cubic Feet is a story about the body--how it can be broken, how it can be violated and sometimes used to violate others. And yet, we go on. We heal, and life continues.

His family has good intentions, but Theo's father is recovering from a car accident, ...more

Lania Knight’s Three Cubic Feet is a most compelling book; I was propelled through it with nervous intensity and very impressed with the authenticity and feeling with which the author created the painful, conflicted world of a gay teenager. I would have sworn that the book was written by a young gay man, so vividly and specifically has Lania Knight captured the yearnings, the conflicts, the raunchy fantasies, the grubby demimonde of casual sex, the fear of outing, the confusion and the pain of ...more

This book successfully lets us into the minds of its characters. I felt the author did an awesome job of pulling in the people around the main character and letting us know about them also. It was a "good read" and one that I will pass on to others to read also.

Gripping. Raw. Intimate. A true page-turner of a journey through homosexuality, violence, and love.

I received an Advanced Reader copy of this book through Goodreads. The book was a touching glimpse into the life of a homosexual teenage boy who struggles with love, his sexuality,and friendship.

It is a privilege to be in the mind of sixteen-year-old Theo in Lania Knight’s coming-of-age novel Three Cubic Feet. The book enters the weeds of inchoate sexuality with compelling and sympathetic prose by way of his voice and his actions. By turns funny, and often utterly heartbreaking before turning triumphant, the novel charts Theo’s navigation of the frequently rough terrain many young men and women, gay and straight, face in coming to terms with the carnal and the ineffable strain of the ...more

I'm still waiting for the gay romantic comedy, where everybody gets married in the end and the initial pain is no more than a misunderstanding based on the awkwardness of sudden mutual attraction. Lania Knight gets closer, despite the depth and authenticity of the pain, perhaps because her protagonist is so young and, somehow, presents the possibility of resilience.

Yet there's no riding off into the sunset, just a hard-fought romance finally, innocently consummated.

How long must young, homosexua

I live in Illinois, and I teach creative writing at Eastern Illinois University. My stories and essays have been recently published or are forthcoming from The Rumpus, PANK, New Stories from the Midwest, Midwestern Gothic, Jabberwock Review, and others. I love alt/indie music, writing, and camping. I miss the Ozark Mountains.
