Overview

A modern day gay Lolita, The Pelican Fables is a poetic and provocatively written coming-of-age story that confronts the burgeoning sexuality of a young man in his last year of prep school.



Adam Proffit is torn apart by his longstanding, highly concealed crush on his roommate of two years, Kellum Thurman, and the newly arrived faculty member, Carter Moran, whom Adam believes may share his attraction. But within the conservatively charged atmosphere of the Melbourne School, acting upon any of his sexual impulses presents a dangerous proposition that could jeopardize Adam's existence at Melbourne and destroy the future for which he has worked so long and hard.



But keeping his feelings hidden poses perhaps an even graver and more devastating challenge. Adam must either come to terms with his sexuality or find the emerging self within him destroyed.



Uplifting and surprising, The Pelican Fables will keep you wondering until the very last page.

    Great Read!

    'The Pelican Fables' is a provocative coming-of-age story about a handsome young jock named Adam at an all male prep school who is secretly in love with his very good looking roommate, Kellum. A twist is thrown into the emotional mix when a new professor, Carter, arrives and for whom Adam develops a strong attraction that may or may not be mutual, even if absolutely forbidden. The dramatic tension mounts as Adam's unrequited lust and feelings eventually cause him to act upon his long-repressed, highly-charged sexual/emotional impulses. For anyone who read 'A Separate Peace' or 'Cathcher in the Rye,' but found the smoldering homoerotic tension a bit too ungratifying, 'The Pelican Fables' takes you where these literary classics were too afraid to go, which is all the way. But in the end, 'The Pelican Fables' is a well written story that is not ashamed of being steamy and which nicely captures the tenderness and excitement of the characters' first homosexual experiences.
