Drama Queers! by Frank Anthony Polito, Frank Polito

Ever since Mrs. Malloy assigned us the What I Want To Be When I Grow Up paper earlier that year in her 1st hour English, my mind had been made up. . . I, Bradley James Dayton, will be a famous actor someday!

Meet Bradley Dayton—a wickedly funny high school senior whose woefully uncool life always seems to be full of drama, even in the sorry little suburb of Hazel Park, Michigan. It's 1987, the era of big hair, designer jeans, and Dirty Dancing. George Michael has "Faith" and Michael Jackson still has a nose. Brad, on the other hand, has a thing for acting, and while his friends are trying to get laid, Brad's trying to land the lead in Okla-homo! and practicing the Jane Seymour monologue from Somewhere in Time.

Sure, he'd like to get laid too, but while Brad has known he was gay forever, the rest of "Hillbilly High" is not so forthcoming. Brad's already lost one best friend, Jack, who dropped out of marching band to step into the closet. But lately, things are looking up. Not only has Brad made Homecoming Top Five, but Richie, a new, totally cute member of drama club, definitely seems to be sending signals—and he's not the only one. Before senior year ends, Brad will know more about love, lust, and friendship than he ever thought possible. Because if all the world's a stage, he's ready to be in the spotlight. . .

Praise for Frank Polito and Band Fags!

"This is a love letter to a time when happiness was a pair of Calvin Klein jeans, and every heartbreak could be fixed by listening to your Bonnie Tyler or REO Speedwagon albums." —Michael Thomas Ford, author of What We Remember

"A sweet, funny, deeply felt valentine to the wonder/horror of coming of age in the 1980's." —Dennis Hensley, author of Misadventures in the (213)

At 409 pages long, the only real fault in the story is length. In fact, splitting the book into two separate novels mightn't have been a bad idea, especially because I've purchased books half as long that haven't been this enjoyable. Brad's an extremely likeable character, and his commentaries are always quite funny. And it is a welcome change to a genre where there have been one too many sappy and emotional unstable gay teens. One thing I would say is that while the haphazard style of going back and forth is realistic in terms of narration, I did find it actively distracting in the story, as you could literally go for pages during an event where you are being explained something else. I even recall a flashback within a flashback that was a real hassle. Other than that, amazing novel, would recommend it in a second flat.

If you liked Band Fags, You'll love Drama Queers. It fills in the blanks about what Brad was up to when he and Jack were not as close as they once were. I couldn't put it down. I may be biased though because I'm from hillybilly High also!!
