Alex has a nagging set of problems. He's just moved out to get away from his family, but they wouldn't leave him alone. He's fallen in love with a gorgeous, inaccessible colleague whose idea of intimacy is an intellectual dialogue on art and literature. His friend's boyfriend's a cheat and has taken a liking to him. His students are fighting each other. His fanatic aunt thinks he's going to hell. He has to balance a budget on the wages of a part-time academic. He has a love struck sixteen-year-old practically throwing herself at him. He has to learn how to cook. He has to come out to his family. And he's only twenty-one.
Set in a fictitious city near the San Francisco Bay Area, Pastoral is the story of Alex Chasen, who tackles the world armed with nothing more than a glaring absence of a normal childhood, a dwindling savings account, and wide-eyed optimism. His is a story celebrating romance, diversity, friendship, and, yes, family— while satirizing heterosexism, hypocrisy, and just plain nastiness.
The author has pledged to donate a dollar for every book sold to the Human Rights Campaign on behalf of anti-gay hate crime victims.
