1 Review
A young boy falls in love with his minister. A high school student moves in with his gay uncle. An artist's model comes out of the closet naked. Add a nine-year-old transvestite, a one-night stand with Bert Lahr, and a murder. What do you get? Small Favors, stories about gay life in rural Michigan that are funny and insightful, poignant and wise. "His everyday shines with an extraordinary light. Gentle, endearing, sometimes campy, appropriately crass, often wry, always funny". -- Kirkus Reviews
