Fishboys of Vernazza – J. S. Jones

FOV(Not discussed by the group but written in a personal capacity.)

I liked the author’s previous books so ordered this one. The stories are a bit dated but a good read.

Chatting up a handsome waiter on holiday, cruising in the sand dunes, should a gay teacher come out when asked by his pupils? invited to a wedding not only as a gay man but with a Jewish partner, how do you react to a positive HIV test? A widow aching for raunchy sex, a mother realising that her gay son gets up to most of the stuff she did when younger, a gay priest with tattoos and piercings, worrying that if you put sun cream on your cock it will taste nasty if you get lucky, being queer bashed by a trick – it’s all here.

As is the issue of kidney donation and a man with breast cancer – what would you do if you had six months to live?
