Unflinchingly, he explores the possibilities of a gay perspective while exploding the assumptions of a straight alphabet. A Few Sharp Sticks will be a different book for every reader... - STUART ROSS, author of Snowball, Dragonfly, Jew ...here are twenty-six sharp sticks, riffs on sentences from a law book on voluntary associations, each begetting its (lower-case) companion, together generating a loose set of not-quite-voluntary associations, little time-bombs... Brian Dedora has crafted a genuine contribution not just to the body (and mind!) of Gay writing, but to Canadian writing and indeed to writing itself. A Few Sharp Sticks teaches us something of how to lead our lives, how to feel, how to think. - PETER QUARTERMAIN, Emeritus Professor of English
