Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan – Book Review

Levithan contrasts the different lives lived by several gay teenagers in contemporary America in a series of stories that are held together with a Greek chorus of gay men of previous generations – most in particular, the men who lived through the rise of AIDs during the 80s and 90s and watched many of their number fall ill and die. It’s beautiful and sad and hopeful and wonderful altogether.
