Book review: ‘Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die: James Dean’s Final Hours’

Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die

The minute you glimpsed the red-and-blues, you knew you were sunk. Yep, and now you have a traffic citation to pay for stepping on it, having a lead foot, a pedal to the metal. You knew better than to exceed the speed limit, but you couldn’t resist and, as you’ll see in the new book […]

This new short-story collection will make you ponder


And they lived happily ever after. Even today, years after you’ve outgrown fairy tales, those words make you smile. Ohh, how you love a happy ending, even though (and maybe because) life doesn’t always work out that way. As a matter of fact, in Nothing Looks Familiar, a new short-story collection by Shawn Syms, sad […]

This ‘Stonewall’ is rock-solid


Your favorite hang-out isn’t all that fancy. It’s comfortable, though: you’ve got places to sit, flat surfaces for your stuff, and your friends are always around. It wasn’t always that way, though, as you’ll see in Stonewall: Breaking Out in the Fight for Gay Rights by Ann Bausum. For years, it’d been illegal in many […]

Book review: ‘The Right Side of History: 100 Years of LGBTQI Activism’

Right Side of History

Somebody got you started. That’s the hard part and, oftentimes, that’s all you need: a forward-thinking person to lay the framework so you can roll with a project, adding, subtracting, shaping, refining.

Book review: ‘Holy Cow!’ by Boze Hadleigh — A book that isn’t just horseplay!

Holy Cow

From the time you were old enough to communicate, you took to words like a duck to water. You’ve verbally hammed it up ever since.

Book Review: ‘Bobby Wonderful’ is sure to strike a chord for many caregivers

Bobby Wonderful

“It’s perfect!” Once upon a time, those words were music to your ears – but then you grew up. You learned then that a made bed didn’t make the man, good enough generally was and, as in the new book Bobby Wonderful by Bob Morris, sometimes it’s better to ignore perfection and focus on a […]

This memoir turns out to be a nice surprise


The song went ‘round and ‘round in your head. Maybe that’s why it’s called “a round.” You know how it works: one group starts to sing and, when they get to a certain point, the next group begins anew and so on, until the endings lap like waves. But, as in the new book Course […]

Summertime reading! Here are some great ideas

Handsome man reading a book on the beach

There’s too much stuff in your house. Too much stuff leads to frustration. Frustration leads to cleaning. Cleaning leads to finding (more) stuff you forgot you had… like the bookstore gift certificate you got seven months ago. Uh oh. So now what? You’ve read all the Buzz Books – so what get with that new-found […]

The perfect antidote to those sticky social situations


Who loves a party? You do, that’s who! You love the invitations, the decorations, and the balloons. You love the cake and ice cream, and the games are fun. If there’s a magician or a clown, that’s even better. But what if the party wasn’t quite right? What if the guest list made you upset? […]
