Boys and Oil
I have been waiting for this book. Boys and Oil is more than a memoir, it is a protest. Taylor Brorby has created a bridge between daydreams and nightmares; the gentle stirrings of the prairie and the violence of the oil and gas industry. We see through the lens of a gay man, how character and identity are shaped by the landscapes that raise us. There is nothing sentimental in these pages. The Literary West is more complete because of this stand up story of beauty and brokenness by a fearless writer named Brorby.
