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

John Boyne’s novel The Absolutist is not your typical war story. It tells the tale of Tristan Sadler, a young man disowned by his family, who enlists in the English army in 1919. He hopes of prove himself on the battlefield, but instead finds an unlikely lover in another solider.

This poignantly told story of passion, jealousy, heroism, and betrayal set in the gruesome trenches of World War I will break your heart, and the many twists and turns the plot takes will keep you turning the pages. Just be sure to have a box of tissue handy. You’ll need them.

      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.
