Ripe: Letters by Alan Semrow

4 Stars

Wonderful Collection

A collection of letters from a gay man about his life and journey of exploits, so-to-speak. I enjoyed reading this book, and how it showed a story. I wasn't sure of the book cover, but I've learned to never judge a book by it's cover. The letters were interesting, and who they were addressed to, was funny, yet endearing. The letters are raw and erotic, but not-so-detailed, where it leaves a lot to the imagination. One of my favorites was entitled or written to "dear two weeks", as he writes, "You,fair fellow, took me away from just about everything for almost exactly two weeks. And what a two weeks it was." I enjoyed this collection, and look forward to more of the author's "memoirs" written through letters.
