This is absolutely fantastic writing. Your evocation of the characters, of the confusion of a budding sexual preference, of the quiet inner dialogue surrounding said preference, of the exploration of the vast chasm between what young men say and who they are, of the desperate pain of revelation and the quiet holding of the reception of such . . . you are truly an amazing writer. Are you trained somehow or do you just know how to do this? How much revision? Do you struggle (as I do) with a piece, changing one word over and over until it weaves itself in correctly, or do you flash through it and move on? This story is an eggshell held delicately in the fingertips of an excellent writer, one who knows how best to hold it to the light and reveal its translucence, how to turn it just so so we see its cracks and lumps and call them art.
