Reading this totally transported me to New York in the eighties, both in sense of place and of queer visibility. Philip is trying to find the courage to come out to his parents. Meanwhile his parents are struggling with the gentrification of the city and loss of their apartment (hello, New York!) Philip’s father is also hiding his own homosexuality, while he spends his weekends frequenting gay porn cinemas. This is about the secrets we keep from the ones we love the most.
