Oktober 1999

In his award-winning first book, Bob Smith offered up a witty dose of nineties reality with his observations as a happily adjusted gay man. Now, after breaking up with his longtime boyfriend, Smith looks back to his painfully normal childhood to see where all the trouble really began. Like every other American kid, Bob's adolescence was marked by alternating moments of blissful ignorance, hazy confusion, and humiliating self-consciousness. And in these pages, Bob evokes his youth with a vividness that will make you shudder and howl with recognition.

In these hysterically humorous pages, Bob Smith introduces readers to his comically unsympathetic grandmother, who makes light of his carsickness: "Bob only throws up because he's near the window and he can"; to his first teacher crush, whose "five-o'clock shadow could plunge a room into darkness"; and to his first brush with fame, when he fainted from his chair during a biology filmstrip ("Way to go, Smith!"). Sharp, observant, ingeniously ironic and wholly satisfying, this new Lambda Award-nominated collection is at once bittersweet nostalgic fun and a testament to the unquestionable gifts of a highly original comic writer.

"The great thing about the shareware between a couple is that the network is limited to the two of you," writes humorist Bob Smith in "Wolf Whistling in the Dark," the first chapter in his second collection of interlinked essays. "No one has ever understood me or known me better than Tom, but recently we seemed to have forgotten each other's access code." The novella-length examination of the breakup of Smith's long-term relationship is one of the highlights of Way to Go, Smith!--but each essay has its gemlike moments. Although some of his epigrammatic quips are gay-specific ("Gay men have a tendency to examine an attractive body almost as if, by some miracle, they might have to identify it later when it turns up in their beds"), Smith's recollections of his childhood experiences at home and school would strike a chord with any reader. His sexuality and the experiences that stem from it are combined with these anecdotes in an unapologetic but also unassuming way that teaches all of us to accept Bob Smith just as he is (though it's hard not to like such a handsome and witty guy)--and, hopefully, to accept others around us for who they are as well. --Ron Hogan

I was sad to hear about Tom and Bob, and the first chapter made me want to cry, but this is an Excellent book. When I was reading it, the thought, 'why can't my friends be this interesting?' was circling through my mind. Anyone who can make his high school year book entertaining deserves large sums of money. I hope his life works as well as Kurt!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even Better than "Openly Bob" 12. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde

I loved Bob Smith's "Openly Bob." So, I was cheered to find his second collection of essays. I thought it was better than the Lambda Award-winning "Openly Bob." Just wonderful and laugh-outloud funny. I am just sorry that Bob and Tom didn't work out. Sigh....

Excellent accounts of breaking up, dealing with family and rentering that dreaded dating scene. Although I was sad to see Tom and Bob didn't make it, it was nice to read that Bob has gone on with his life. Easy read and very entertaining. One more big hit for Bob! Way to go, Smith (I couldn't resist)
