Gay men experience this more than others because our images are usually excluded from advertising and the mass media.

Therefore, we are more in touch with this deprivation -- and have a greater need to fill it.Perry Brasss combination of white hot eroticism and spirituality is unique among gay writers. His work is both fantastic in his imagination, and utterly believable in its human passion. -- William J. Mann, authorStrikingly designed. The holiday gay book of 1997!

How does a gay -- and Jewish -- man develop a relationship with the mysterious figure of Jesus? What is the hidden work of gay men? How does one pull depth and nourishment from a commercialized gay lifestyle?These questions are addressed in The Lover of My Soul, acclaimed poet/novelist/essayist Perry Brasss first collection of poetic writings since Sex-charge.

For readers who dont do poetry, The Lover of My Soul will be a revelation. Brass has put the flesh and blood of experience into this unique form. Unsparing. Direct. Honest. Lover does for the yearning for the gay spirit what Lammy-nominated Sex-charge did for poetic eroticism -- and always with the delightful humor, heat, and pathos for which Brass has become famous.Also included are Perrys extensive -- and hilarious -- collection of zinger aphorisms called How to Survive (And Even Overcome) the Stupidities of What Passes As the Wisdom of Modern LifeThe Lover of My Soul is a guidebook to the place we seek: the union of ourselves with something more powerful, forgiving, and wise.
