Inhaltsangabe: Book by Clark Geoffrey

Críticas:

"In this classic story of male adolescence and homophobia, Clark writes with seemingly effortless clarity--clarity of narrative, sentence, meaning, and character--and this short, richly packed novel may well be his masterpiece."--DeWitt Henry, author of "Sweet Dreams"

"In this rite of passage story set at a Boy Scout summer camp, Clark's protagonist, Larry Carstairs, meets up with Curly Norrys, a curious blend of humor, intellectual acumen, nihilism, and sheer malevolence. Clark makes us feel, full strength, Larry's struggle with the nature of ambiguity. Clark's fiction here, as elsewhere, is a compelling mix of straight realism and black humor."--Jack Smith, author of "Hog to Hog"

"It's the rare adolescent who doesn't experience some trepidation that the real contest he might confront--perchance with fateful consequences--at a summer camp for boys will not occur on its athletic fields or at the lakeside swimming heats and canoe trials. Geoffrey Clark's "Two, Two, Lily-White Boys" soberly pierces the Scout Camp Greavey's character-building scrim of perseverance, steadfastness, and patriotism to reveal what disquiets the minds and hearts of those about to enter the straits of manhood. With striking verisimilitude he illumines Larry Carstairs' week away from his Michigan home when a tragic incident impels him to jettison the comfortable precepts and indivisibility of childhood for the ambiguities and dark uncertainties coincidental to becoming an adult. One emerges from this evocative work recalling that daunting passage in past time when we ceased to reason like a child and put childish ways behind us."--Dennis Must, author of "Oh, Don't Ask Why "and "Banjo Grease"
