Reading Speak my Language is a reminder that the short story is a quick piece of literature for the deep thinker. While you may be able to read these stories quickly, the handful of pages they cover tend to provide as much food for thought as a full novel
It's a rich, varied identity explored here that spans locations, cultures, perspectives ages and eras. With work from familiar British talent to internationally-acclaimed authors. Speak my Language is an opportunity to hear a myriad of gay voices.
One of the most exquisite gay anthologies of the year
This often dark collection explores what it means to be a gay man. There are certainly special things to be found among the 40 stories.
There's a particular kind of loneliness or isolation that many of the excellent writers included here, like Patrick Gale and Damian Barr, explore which reflects the experience of being gay, whether in secret or out in the open
A truly enormous collection of short stories from a diverse collection of LGBT writers. The stories are eclectic and brilliant, and it's pretty much the essential purchase of 2015 for even the most casual reader of queer fiction.
