Just to give you a sense of what this novel is like, here's an excerpt from the book next to which I wrote "are you kidding me?":
When the sun speared out of a gray diarrhea of cloud, it turned into script – a celestial Linear B. The light struck fluo

Garth Greenwell
“I had been sick before, of course, but this felt more than sickness, like a physical confirmation of shame.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You

Garth Greenwell
“That's all care is, I thought, it's just looking at a thing long enough, why should it be a question of scale? This seemed like a hopeful thought at first, but then it's hard to look at things, or to look at them truly, and we can't look at many at once, and it's so easy to look away.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You

Garth Greenwell
“I grew up at the height of the AIDS panic, when desire and disease seemed essentially bound together, the relationship between them not something that could be managed but absolute and unchangeable, a consequence and its cause. Disease was the only story anyone ever told about men like me where I was from, and it flattened my life to a morality tale, in which I could be either chaste or condemned. Maybe that's why, when I finally did have sex, it wasn't so much pleasure I sought as the exhilaration of setting aside restraint, of pretending not to be afraid, a thrill of release so intense it was almost suicidal.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You

Garth Greenwell
“I fell back from him then, I lay next to him thinking, as I had had cause to think before, of how helpless desire is outside its little theater of heat, how ridiculous it becomes the moment it isn't welcomed, even if that welcome is contrived.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You

Garth Greenwell
“But I'm your son, which was my only appeal and the last thing I would say. He made a dismissive sound, almost a laugh, and then he spoke again, with a snarling voice I had never heard before, he said The hell you are. He went on, he spoke without stopping, A faggot, he said, if I had known you would never have been born. You disgust me, he said, do you know that, you disgust me, how could you be my son? As I listened to him say these things it was as though even as I laid claim to myself I found there was nothing to claim, nothing or next to nothing, as though I were dissolving and my tears were the outward sign of that dissolution.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You
