This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Would you ever listen to anything by Edmund White again?
It would have to be free.
What didn’t you like about Ken Kliban’s performance?
Like having your grandfather read you porn. The biggest mismatch of voice to material I've encountered. Furthermore, the narrator's hesitating cadence has nothing to do with the author's pacing. Too, Kliban makes no effort to differentiate the voices of Jack Holmes and his friend, Will. When these characters talk to each other, it's as one person talking to himself.
What character would you cut from Jack Holmes and His Friend?
The narrator. Someone more appropriate might have salvaged this audiobook - might have.
Any additional comments?
This was a distorted caricature of gay life. I could not tell you if the author was being satirical or was truly misinformed. If you want to know accurate information about being gay, ask someone you know in real life. Do not take this oddity as gospel.
