Boys, Lost & Found: Stories Is Released by Gival Press
Boys, Lost & Found: Stories by Charles Casillo has just been released by Gival Press.
According to Edward Field, "These fascinating, often funny, stories that engage the heart, lead us on quite a safari through the perils and joys of gay life. Casillo's characters--sexy Italian-Americans with operatic, roller coaster emotional lives--search unstoppably for love, from feverish New York to exotic Los Angeles. Congratulations for a fine-tuned, courageous performance!"
Felice Picano, a gay icon, describes the collection: "Casillo's surprising and accomplished collection reveals a heart-felt observer of life's emotional emergencies and indignities told with immediacy and feeling."
Casillo's stories, which could easily be used in a Gay Studies course because of its real-to-life portrayals, does not fail to entertain and keep the reader turning
each page to discover yet another provocative character.
Casillo is also the author of the biography Outlaw: The Lives and Careers of John Rechy, whose City of Night is a classic. Casillo who has a fascination about Marilyn Monroe also wrote The Marilyn Diaries.
