A better title for this book might have been Misery Loves Company or maybe even Why Me? Gay Memoirs Placing Blame Why? Because that's exactly what this literary gathering of gay scribes does in story after story and page after page Never before have I read tales of reciprocating dysfunction in one place than here in the uestionably named Boyfriends From HellOh don't get me wrong there are some beautifully written tales here but if what you're hoping for are witty takes on the dating scene as suggested by the colorful and sensationally rendered cover you'll be sadly disappointed The tales told herein are grim at best and generously layered with all of the worst traits exhibited by the average self absorbed gay schmuck There is plenty of woe is me why doesn't anyone understand me byplay in such stories as What Counts Most by Jameson Currier in which the protagonist recounts his many insecurities which stem from being the boyfriend of a fatally handsome and closeted married manAs should be expected there are also a few gems in this collection Like Gabriel Wrye's gorgeously evocative Straight Time in which the sad sack protagonist experiences all the humiliation and misadventure the holidays can concoct for one who is recently dumped with only his own self loathing and an eually benumbed lesbian as companions Another exception to the gloom is Jerry Rosco's My Boyfriend Brought Home A Rock Band a luminous account of his time spent in the presence of greatness even as a long term relationship was coming to an end Though not necessarily of the Boyfriends From Hell variety either it is a generously loving snapshot of a time long gone and a life lived wellWhich is NOT what I predict for anyone who wades through this depressing collection of bitter memoirs in one sitting Rather I suggest you hide the cutlery and throw on a few Bette Midler standards before going in You'll also want to space the reading out a bit lest the thought of terminal paper cuts enter your mind as a viable option to ending the madness and suffering If ever there was an argument for abstinence and perpetual bachelorhood Boyfriends From Hell is definitely IT I thought this book would be witty biting and light I was wrong The title is spot on in a way These are true stories about disastrous relationships albeit along the lines of the Talented Mr Ripley than Beach Blanket Bingo What is sad is that what it really seems to be about is how maladjusted gay sycophants are incapable of interpersonal relationships Period They can neither love nor be loved Definitely not a good read
