Based on events around the Trojan War but set in a contemporary gay urban setting, 'An Arrow's Flight' meanders between thoughtful insights into the human condition and smug satisfaction at its own cleverness. There were times when the mix of ancient Greek culture and contemporary gay culture were devastatingly funny and other moments when the device was just too cumbersome. The real value of the book was reading Merlis' tender and honest reflections on sex and love scattered throughout.
