Recommended for: everyone who has dealt with the fallout between religion and sexuality
Read in April, 2007

I attended this play during the revival, and I struggled not to cry openly at the impossibility of Alex's situation, caught as he was between his love for his parents, his partner, his religion and his god. I purchased the book on the way out the door, and when I got home, I read it all the way through. It's not long, but it packed just as hard a punch as the live play. Pearson is occasionally unsubtle in her writing, but overall, I give this five out of five stars for the clarity she brings to the issue.
