Jay Mandal is unique in his writing of gay love - his uplifting stories focus on romance rather than sex. There are tragedies in these stories - life is like that.

This is a collection of stories that glimpse into the lives of various characters. The stories tend to be similar and along well known and used tropes, but the writing once again shines with the humor and compassion of the tales. Although not a perfect collection and several stories begin and end in confusion as if missing essential parts of the telling, the overall themes of love, loss, and romance are evident. The fact that the majority (but not all) of the characters happen to be gay
"Many of the stories in the collection read like scripts for radio, with small nods toward description and setting. Mandal has a good ear for the cadence of conversation, and captures well the subtle balance between revealing and probing involved in establishing where a chance meeting might lead. "
