Vestal McIntyre recommends
Probation (2010)
Tom Mendicino
"If David Sedaris were cast as Willy Loman, it might sound something like Probation.  Andy, a sharp-tongued travelling salesman, gives us the life events that led to his being taken away in handcuffs, and the hilarious and agonizing self-inquiry that follows.  Snarky, yet profound, it is a bold examination of the destructive effects of a life spent in the closet, reported with a Carolina twang."
Yield (2010)
Lee Houck
"Witty and wrenching, Yield is required reading for anyone who wants to know what it means to be young, gay and without a roadmap in today's world."
