Chris James Posted January 15, 2014 Report Share Posted January 15, 2014 Insightful is the word that comes to mind after reading this story. Three moments in time give us the means to look back in a middle-aged man's life and see when he developed the understanding many of us have to face at some point. I would be remiss if I did not say that Frederic has been writing such wonderful stories for quite some time. I first came across his American Cupcake story some years ago and then found myself devouring his epic Fifteen. Both of those stories were more aggressive treatments of the gay characters, but I found them to be marvels of construction in the English language. With Still Life, Frederic has climbed into the head of his main character and given us an empathetic, and as I said, insightful look at the coming of age story. Thank you, Frederic, and bravo for a delightful read. Look for it here: http://www.awesomedude.com/tsf/still_life_with_three_boys.htm Quote Link to comment
