Phillip Anderson, a former college football player who stands six-feet-eight-inches tall, is appalled after catching his youngest son trying to copy ballet dancers on TV.  He is inclined to believe that eight-year-old Brandon is displaying gay tendencies. Since Brandon shows remarkable athletic ability, Phillip encourages him to immerse himself in sports, which should direct him properly into manhood and away from being a “sissy-boy”. Over the years, Brandon develops into a celebrated high school and collegiate football player who goes on the win the Heisman Trophy.

Telling a young boy to “be a man” can take a toll on who he really is and who he may develop into. Many believe what society does to boys before they grow into men is wrong.  This new psychological novel delivers an insightful read of the complexities a father discovers and accepts about raising a gay son. All this happens despite his understanding of the homophobic stereotype surrounding an athlete in the world of competitive high school and collegiate football.

R. Christopher Longstreet is presently living in Sydney, Australia after moving from London, England. Originally from Seattle, Washington, he received an MPS degree from Cornell University.

  • That Gir

    Gut wrenching but totally worth it. My heart broke but they picked it up and put it back together. I cried so hard but I wouldn’t have it any other way…this was such a lovely read.

    My heart is still not over it and I hate myself for not reading it as soon as I bought it.

    Just amazing
