Queerty’s Fall Reading Recommendations: David Rakoff, John Boyne, And More

Alison Wearing’s childhood was largely carefree childhood. Until she was 12, when she realized that her family was a little more complex than she had realized. Her father loved to bake croissants, wear silk pajamas around the house, and skip down the street singing songs from Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. He eventually came out in the 1970s, yet remained determined to find a way to live both as a gay man and also a devoted father.

Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is also the story of “coming out” as the daughter of a gay father. For years, Alison concealed her father’s sexual orientation from her friends. Over time, however, she came to see that life with her father was surprisingly interesting and entertaining, even oddly inspiring, and in fact, there was nothing to hide.

Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is a funny and captivating true tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.

      Couldn’t care less – the new Pynchon is out September 17th and that’s all I’ll ever need.

      Please put it all on one page. I don’t do click-throughs and I believe I speak for the majority.
