Title: A Very, Very Bad Thing
Author: Jeffery Self
Pub. Date: October 31, 2017
From the author of Drag Teen, a startling novel about the complexities of identity — and of truth.
Marley doesn’t just want to be labeled The Gay Kid, but he doesn’t have much else going on. He doesn’t have any hobbies. Or interests. He’s the only kid he knows without a passion . . . until Christopher comes to town. He’s smart, cute, gay, and . . . the son of the country’s most famous, most bigoted television evangelist.
Marley and Christopher immediately spark — and become inseparable. For a month, it’s heaven. Then Christopher’s parents send him to a Pray Away the Gay program, which leads to even worse things. Hurt and outraged, Marley tells a very big lie — and then has to navigate its repercussions.
I paired this emotionally gripping contemporary novel, which is all about self discovery with this Compass Point Chardonnay. Like the novel, this wine is full of intensity and rich detail, and the flavor will linger with you long after you finish the glass.
