Born to a single mother in Dust Bowl-era Nebraska, Roy Manger learns to deny his true self from an early age.

This author is new to me and I liked his smooth style. Set in the dust bowl days of the 1920s in Nebraska, the story follows Roy, a young gay man trying to find himself. Leaving the harsh life in Nebraska, Roy finds himself as a classy prostitute in a Chicago brothel. Adventure calls in the form of Woodrow and the two return to Roy's family home with Woodrow still heading west. This is an interesting and different coming of age story set in an an era that many people did not live through. Roy's ...more

4 Stars.

Cameron Ramses is a new-to-me author.

To be quite honest, I have absolutely no idea how to review A Decade of Visions, or how to rate it either. All I can say is it was unexpected, original, intriguing yet confusing, and in a niche genre unto itself. So while I don't want to steer anyone away from reading it, I fear those looking for a mainstream MM romance will be confused. While those who 'get it', which I was one of

2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: A Decade of Visions by Cameron Ramses
1) Unusual, intriguing, very different style and narrative; beautiful in all its shadows.
2) This book feels more like gay lit than true romance – the arc is strongly related to the setting, as it relates to the development of the main character who is genderfluid, or perhaps M2F. There is a fascinating historical feel, a very interesting psychology, and some delving into the mind of a character with more than their shar
