About the Author

Jay Bell never gave much thought to Germany until he met a handsome foreign exchange student. At that moment, beer and pretzels became the most important thing in the world. After moving to Germany and getting married, Jay found himself desperate to communicate the feelings of love and alienation that surrounded this decision. He's been mashing laptop keys ever since.

Jay is a Lambda Literary Award winner and a fairly bad dancer. He also thinks that you're really cool. Seriously.

I'm not a fan of short stories but I am a fan of the Authors work so I decided to give Language Lessons a go. As short stories go, it was ok. Were Introduced to Joey, a confident 17 year old who is only interested in one thing, Sex, well ok, 2 things, Sex and his appearance, but the latter is only a device to help him obtain the former. He hooks up with an old crush and learns of said crush's love for another. Joey architects a meet with the two of them at a restaurant and whilst there, meets Phillip, a cute waiter who seems impervious to Joeys charms. Joey becomes obsessed with having what he can't have and sets out on mission to make Phillip his, and on this mission discovers that there is more to life than sex and ultimately discovers love to be far more rewarding. My problem with short stories is, it's like going out for a meal and only having a dessert. They are nice enough, with a sweet ending, but ultimately unfulfilling and you leave feeling hungry for something else. Worth a read though if time is limited and you want to pass a quick half hour.

I just purchased this book and finished reading already since it is a short story. I had been looking to read a gay romance novel (not a gay porn) after reading this book I plan on reading two other books by the author that are full novels. The story was realistic and easy to follow. Somewhere in the world I'm sure this a tennage boys' real life experience.

I don't like short stories, yet I thought this was great. It's perfect to curl up on the couch and read in an afternoon. Short, yet very sweet.

The novel was somewhat entertaining and heart-stirring, but this short story isn't very adventurous and is somewhat plain, regardless, I enjoyed reading it.

Loved this great short story. Loved how he was able to create a great story with such little writing.

If you're looking for a cute story with a happy ending, you're in the right place. It also has just enough sex to keep someone with the atention span of a moth (me) interested. Plus, it's free.

It was a perfect summer read: No complexity, well-crafted, if simple, characters, a light storyline, and a cute ending. Definitely recommended.

Enjoyed this more than I thought. It was a nice break from college’s overload of papers and mundane life. Thank you for showing us love!

Good book. I thought the characters and the relationships weren't believable. I thought the ending was good though.
