“They say towns like this don’t exist anymore, but I know that they do because I live here. Noxington is one of those towns where the big stores that sell everything…have yet to be built.” The opening lines of the first chapter lay out a small, hardscrabble Louisiana town where thirty-six-year-old Boz Matthews lives, not completely by choice, but because when he attempts to leave, he feels sick.

Hyatt shows us a thoroughly complicated and unexpected love story unfolding in the deep south. Hyatt writing is welcoming and Beautiful Gravity's inclusiveness makes you a part of the simple candor between all of the book's lovers.

I've never been so much a person within a work of fiction. To read this work is to become a confidante; a silent and respectful onlooker who must pause to consider how wonderfully expressed this story is. It rings true with its distance and pain; its fright and joy.
Wonderful book of many profound "outsider" insights.

The most original of stories this year. Boz, Catty, Meg and Kyle develop into a family—each holding the other up. Surprised and accomplished ending.

In the great tradition of Southern gothic writing, this lovely novel combines a sadness and eroticism in a new voice that had me feeling many emotions all at once. It is beautifully written. The characters seem larger than life while also being pitiable. The narrator is unlike most gay characters and his journey unlike any I've ever read. I really want to talk about this book with someone. Read it and give me a call.
