Inhaltsangabe: The one thing that Eric Fitzpatrick wants is to escape--both from his family and the racially tense town in which he lives. The only son of an Italian-Irish family in a working class suburb of boston, he intends to go away to college and leave his old life far bhind. But all his plans are set askew when he meets Brooks, a mysterious, wealthy, black student at a local prep school. As their relationship grows ever deeper and more complicated, Eric must come to terms not only with his family and community, bu with his warring ambitions and desires.
Rezension: Gay male coming-out novels usually deal more with the personal than with the political, but Getting Off Clean encompasses both. Eric Fitzpatrick is a bright, high school senior in Mendham, a working-class town in Massachusetts. He is determined to fit in, be popular, and go to college. The only problem is that he is gay and just coming out--a problem complicated when he begins having an affair with Brooks Tremont, a black student who attends a prestigious prep school outside of town. When racial violence breaks out in Mendham, both Eric and Brooks have to make some serious choices. Getting Off Clean, deftly written and incredibly smart, challenges us to think in new ways about sexuality, class, race, and the accomplishments of gay fiction.
