Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Paris, the author of four physical fitness books and coauthor of Straight from the Heart (LJ 1/94), with his former partner, Rod Jackson-Paris, is now 37 and sees himself on the cusp between baby boomers and Gen Xers. Though his sweetly nave belief that plumbing his own experience will help others is well-intentioned, the self-indulgence and verbosity of his ruminations provide little of value as he invokes religious and New Age platitudes, offers prayers to the "Infinite Spirit," and espouses empty aphorisms like "Self-love is what will heal our world." The second half of his book is spent answering 19 questions on everything from partners to parenting, gleaned from letters he has received, and ends: "Generation Queer: brothers and sisters who move together with love out of the darkness and into a paradise of our own creation." Among the many similar self-help titles, more useful is Michelangelo Signorile's Life Outside (LJ 7/97).James E. Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.
