First review of 'Unspoken'

The good people at Speak Its Name have done us proud with another carefully-considered review, this time by Michael Joseph who reports on R.A. Padmos's new book UNSPOKEN.

We're bound to agree with the reviewer when he says:

This is a hard book to categorize, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes it hard to suggest who the audience might be. It’s hard to call it romance, given the angst-ridden nature of the main character. You certainly wouldn’t call it erotica. The descriptions of the men’s many sexual encounters are as quick and furtive as the encounters themselves. It’s decidedly un-erotic. As history, much of it rings true...

It's far from a straightforward book, as the reviewer says, but we believe it provides a fascinating and valuable insight into a little-known aspect of gay history.
