A friend of mine recommended this book, after the Publishing Triangle Award finalists were announced. I could not put this book down. While there is a gay theme that runs through this engrossing novel, it is most poignantly a coming of age story and the very delicate relationship between a father and son. Berlin doesn't seem to feel the need to make his characters likable so the effect is that they are more realistic, and their love for each other that much more real. I would never typically say this, but this book would make a great movie! I will definitely be reading this writer¿s other books.

I was happy to see that Belmondo Style is a finalist for The Publishing Triangle's 2005 Fiction Award. I read Adam Berlin's novel last summer and thought it a powerful book, one that has stayed in my head long after I finished it. An anti-gay hate crime is the catalyst for this moving novel between a live-for-the-moment father and his thoughtful sixteen-year-old son. These are fascinating characters with a bond that breaks easy father/son cliches. I hope the award nomination renews interest in this beautiful, layered novel.
