Dear Bibliothekarin :-)

Thank you for mentioning your booklist here. These are all unknown books to me - but seem to be very interesting.

Keep me posted of your friends enjoyment ;-)

Greetings
Li

Hallo,

ich habe soeben das Buch
The Assignment
gelesen und fand es einfach klasse!
Deep feelings and hot m/m-scenes.

Eine der besten Gay-Romances, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe.

Liebe Grüße,
Monika

Try Patrick Gale; I am not into gay literature at all but his books are beautifully written: "Rough Music", "Notes From an Exhibition" and there is a long list on his website as well as on here.

ich mag die Bücher von J. L. Langley
z.B.:

Without Reservations -> Teil 1
With Caution -> Teil 2

Die Bücher sind zwar in sich abgeschlossen, Man(n) trifft sich aber...in den Storys wieder.

sista A meint:
Hi Tante Li,

I found another really good one The Archer's Heart. Like most of the books I really enjoy, it's not only a love story but a fully grown novel (Uh-oh. I just re-read that sentence - don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with love stories. It's only that romance novels are not really my cup of tea - no offence). In many respects it's a classic fantasy novel with a quest and a cast of helpful (or not so helpful) otherworldly entities but it is set in a very lush and colourful world that reminds one of pre-colonial India. It has a nice fairy tale ring to it but not so much that it distances the reader from the characters. They are undoubtedly flesh and blood, sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic and capable of change and development. You can take a peek at it here:

Tante Li meint:
Hi sista A!
How nice to hear from you again :-)
This book sounds really interesting. I will certainly have a intensiv look at it right away ... :-)))

:-( What a pity! It is definitely too expensive for me *cry*

Kind regards

sista A meint:
Hi Tante Li,

*arrgh* when I wrote the review there was a copy available at the marketplace for about 5 Euro but somebody snatched it away from under your nose. So sorry! Yes, usually it is very expensive and I had my eye on it for a very long time before I could get it for a decent price. You might want to watch for it on amazon.co.uk. The shipping costs for a marketplace item from the UK are currently about 4,50 Euro for books, and even less for dvds so if you have a credit card you might get a bargain there at some point. Also helpful (and not only for this book) is this site:

http://www.eurobuch.com/

It could be a bit better designed and the shipping costs are not always displayed (and also sometimes wrong) but at least it tells you where else to look.

And isn't it sometimes nice to get this feeling back we used to have in the olden times? Remember, when not everything was available by clicking a few buttons and one could spend hours in second hand bookstores looking for that one obscure out-of-print science fiction book or suddenly finding out that a favourite author had written a new book? Happy days - and now I hear you saying: Yes, they were, and thank God they are over. And you are right. But please don't cry and - happy hunting ;-).

Tante Li meint:
Hi sista A,

yes, you are right. These happy glory days of longing and hunting are almost over ;-)
A few seconds before I managed to order the book "Rediscovery" (Darkover) by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Mercedes Lackey for about 3,- + 3,- ¤ at the marketplace. I hope I will not be too disappointed when I see it delivered in an unworthy condition.

Thank you for your link and the suggestion of using amazon.co.uk - I have no experience in this ordering.
Maybe the time is ripe to enlarge my hunting area ;-)

Love
Li

Dear Aunt Li: Have you ever tried Edmund White's books?

Veröffentlicht am 12.09.2009 14:11:08 GMT+02:00
'Before Night Falls' by Reinaldo Arenas, a Cuban writer. 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' by John Berendt.
Hope you like them as much as I did.

There is a book called "Profane Freundschaft" written by Harold Brodkey. Its a classic novel which isnt always easy to understand but its great nevertheless. The characters are very well developed and the undertunes are what makes the whole story.

Profane Freundschaft

You are so right, so right... I love her just as much as you do. I loved Hephaestus and Forgive those who tresspass the most. Disturbing, dark and so well written that they could be published if they werent fanfics

Tante Li meint:
Dear L. Yee,
the movie 'Before Night Falls' about the cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas is also impressive - especially with the little supporting roles of Johnny Depp! :-)

Emma290497 meint:
can't really offer any books, but the web offers a large variety of fanfictions in that category.

one forum which hosts a large set of really excellent slash writers (het writers as well) is "of elves and men". you can google it. - a lot is, as the name indicates Lord of the Rings related, but there are various cross over fandoms as well, same as the real person fictions. worth a try, there's really good stuff.

Kat meint:
how about the books of:
- Michael Cunningham (The Hours, A Home at the end of the world - both also made into great movies)
- Hanif Kureishi (Midnight all day, Intimacy, Buddha of Suburbia, ... - also check out his skript made to movie My beautiful laundrette!)

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 16.09.2009 22:55:13 GMT+02:00
Nicht so wirklich mein Feld (Narziss und Goldmund fand ich auch persönlich Hesses holzschnittartigstes Werk), doch wie wär's mit Good Old Shatterhand und Winnetou von Karl May (oder Hägar und Sven Glückspilz) - das wäre ziemlich doughty? :-)

Tante Li meint:
"My Beautiful Laundrette" was a movie I really loved. A pity that the skript by Hanif Kureishi isn't in form of a short story?
:-)

P.S.:
I read it in it's script form now (with Reclam-Explanations) and want to see the movie immediately!

Tante Li meint:
Winnetou und "Sharlie" hatten wirklich eine ganz besondere Beziehung. Einige dieser Karl May-Bände habe ich speziell aus diesem Grund gelesen, aber die Haupthandlung habe ich mir dann doch lieber zusammengefasst in den alten, deutschen Verfilmungen angeschaut. Pierre Brice und Lex Barker sahen schon unverschämt gut miteinander aus *schmacht*
:-)

Pseudonym meint:
Interesting question/discusssion. Maybe I can contribute some suggestions that haven't been made yet, although I have not read every message.

Going through my library, I come upon (fiction)

Philip Ridley, In the eyes of Mr Fury (turned into a film, Reflecting skin)
James Hanley, Boy
Gore Vidal, The city and the pillar
Paul Bowles, Up above the world (not entirely sure about this one, but definitely a great writer)

and (nonfiction)

Samuel R Delany, The motion of light in water (autobiography of a science fiction writer; if I remember it right, also in his novels appear emotional as well as sexual relationships between men, try Dhalgren)
B R Burg, Sodomy and the pirate tradition (about pirate societies and life on board buccaneer ships in the 17th century Caribbean - without women; scientific text)

und ein deutsches Buch

Michael Roes, Leeres Viertel - Rub' Al-Khali.

Wenn ich nochmal drüber nachdenke, Dhalgren, The city and the pillar und Leeres Viertel entsprechen wahrscheinlich am ehesten dem, was Du suchst.

Viel Spaß beim Lesen!

what about mercedes lackey's last herald-mage-trilogy Magic's Pawn, Magic's Promise and Magic's Price? inmo it is the best trilogy she ever wrote in her valdemar world which might be due to the fact that it is a very early trilogy and it is obvious she was still bursting with ideas. anyway it is about a gay mage-bard-couple and no soap opera (like mzb lackey never was afraid to call rape and other gruesome violence just that and she has a really eloquent style which can provoke even nightmares.. even though nowadays she seems to prefer more humourous stories)
enjoy
