The experiment is to determine whether the typical gay reader can read a novel written in a script format. Conventional wisdom says he cant- common sense says he can.

(I read my first screenplay in 8th grade, how hard can it be?) If the typical reader automatically responds Oh I dont read scripts, he will miss out on a heartwarming story that is very funny in places and will prove the elite correct in thinking hes too dumb to understand scripts. If the typical reader does read the novel, positive reinforcement will reward him with an entertaining experience and an upgrade in his social status.

The experiment has already begun. It isnt timed, so take your time and consider the options carefully.______(The series continues from Book 1.) A microchip manufacturer from Munich amuses himself by taunting and evading federal agents with his sophisticated hacking skills.

A friend of OKeefes is killed when he learns too much about the hacker. A handsome Persian-American joins the performers at the supper club where Zephs housemates perform. He becomes romantically involved with one of them until she finds out about his wife and two children.

Another of OKeefes friends, a closeted mixed-martial-arts fighter on the pro circuit, is stalked by a special-ops veteran who kills a tabloid photographer to keep him from outing the fighter. Plus-a preview of Season Two._____Duke Universitys Rare Book, Manuscript and Special Collections Library in 2008 included Tinselfish in its Drewey Wayne Gunn Collection of Gay Male Mysteries and Police Stories.The novel offers a look at gay West Hollywood in the early 00s.

Cafes, bars, and club nights which no longer exist are mentioned and described.Book 1 includes a detailed, extensively researched account of a closeted Amish farmers difficult coming-out process in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in the 70s and 80s. It also includes a chapter which focuses on the gay scene in Philadelphia around Walnut and 13th in the late 80s.Both books extensively reference classic films noirs of the 40s and 50s and highlight the encrypted gay subtext of many of those films.Other chapters explore Hollywood history and examine Intolerance, Clara Bow, Busby Berkeley, and Sunset Blvd.

and the different film technologies and styles prevalent in each era.A Preview of Season Two, an epilogue echoing the style of Arabian Nights in Book 2, weaves a story of near-future Baghdad and Cairo into the continuing present-day story in West Hollywood.Together, Books 1 and 2 feature 14 murders, 10 aggravated assaults, 18 sex scenes, 32 hot guys in their 20s, 14 chanteuse performances, 7 conversations about existentialism, 2 Amish weddings, a she-male call girl service, a sophisticated hacker, and a celebrity stalker.The reader will find Tinselfish an entertaining read, occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, but will also find it educational and enlightening in its exploration of different cultures, regions, time frames, topics, and genres.
