Overview

Storytelling can be a way of spinning straw into gold, of showing ourselves we have drawn a long straw in this life. Charmed Lives offers readers a collection of over thirty short works of fiction and personal essays as an alternative to the stories that society often tells about gay men. Some are whimsical with a touch of enchantment, some profoundly spiritual, others romantic--all offer insight into modern gay life that will inspire and shed light on the grace of being gay with tales of hope against adversity and love over loneliness. A finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Anthology!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Collectively, the writers have produced a personally empowering, kaleidoscopic tapestry. This anthology can be kept on a shelf and referred to for a bit of inspiration on a particularly bad day, or as a resource that keeps the good karma flowing in balance with our everyday lives." - Bay Area Reporter

Victor Banis' 'Canals of Mars' is one of the most beautiful love stories I've read in many a moon. I may be a straight woman but this story is universal. How refreshing to have such a story about those of us who are no longer young... Banis is well-known - and deservedly so! - for his 'Man from C.A.M.P' series, but his current writing is far stronger. It's wonderful to see him tapping such a deep well of feeling.
