Swish: My Quest to Become the Gayest Person Ever and What Ended Up Happening Instead

Swish: My Quest to Become the Gayest Person Ever and What Ended Up Happening Instead

Joel Derfner


A hilarious and deeply relocating account of 1 man’s trip from stereotype to truth.

Joel Derfner is a knitter, an aerobics teacher, a cheerleader, a go-go dancer, and a musical theater composer, but if he realizes in the future that he’s a strolling homosexual cliché he embarks on a quest for deeper which means. a truly, very humorous quest for deeper that means. And even if he’s confronting the demons of his earlier at a GLBT summer time camp, utilizing the net to “meet” men–many, many men–or going undercover to a convention of ex-gays, he discovers that what he’s taking a look for–and occasionally even unearths, hidden beneath the outside of daily life–is his personal id. within the culture of David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, but with its personal specific aptitude, Swish is a narrative instructed with not only wit yet humor; not only candor yet honesty; and never simply compassion yet humanity.
