Bob Smith's 'Selfish and Perverse' is the perfect book for this summer at the Beach. Alternately funny and sexy, the author never fails to entertain. The quick wit and understanding of human nature (particularly male human nature) endears the reader to all Smith's characters including the ones who are obviously flawed. I look forward to other works by this author.

Bob Smith is a witty writer who creates some brilliant sentences. I found myself admiring his creativity and the care he brings to his craftsmanship, rather than laughing, but there is great satisfaction in seeing an intelligent and highly articulate individual play with language in an expert fashion. Unfortunately, despite Mr. Smith's intelligence, his careful approach to his plot and characters, and his facility with language, the book is somehow fails even as a light entertainment. The novel resembles a well-written television comedy which one admires for the writing but doesn't really enjoy. Of course, compared to the mostly terrible gay writing going on at the moment, Bob Smith is exceptional. At the same time, he can't move beyond the coterie of beautiful, gym bodies that ultimately bore. I hope in his next book, Mr. Smith will be braver, tying his abilities to language with a plot that is populated by more interesting and unusual characters. I suspect Mr. Smith was hoping that an unusual location well depicted would compensate, but it does not. My advice: check the book out from the library or wait for the paperback.
