From Library Journal:

In a change of pace, cult horror author Brite (Exquisite Corpse) tells the story of Ricky and Gary, who as best friends coming of age in 1990 New Orleans discover a mutual attraction. Ricky, who aspires to become a chef, secures them both occasional jobs in a diner so that he can indulge his passion for cooking and they can spend time together. Life is complete until their parents discover their true relationship and try to separate them by sending Ricky to a culinary institute in New York. The ensuing hardships (will their relationship survive the separation?) are fairly predictable and frankly not very interesting. Brite offers an all too brief look at the cooking culture-the most interesting parts of the story have to do with the behind-the-scenes world of restaurants-but, unfortunately, these glimpses only scratch the surface. Of interest mainly to adolescent audiences and Brite fans, this book is recommended for large public libraries only.
