“Big Diehl – The Road Home” Released
My novel, “Big Diehl – The Road Home” has been released by MLR Press in ebook format. Print format will soon follow.
This is a follow-up to my novella, “Big Diehl,” also published by MLR Press.
The Diehl stories tell of a young man who, upon his graduation from high school, escapes his dismal life in Wyoming, and finds himself on the road to discover the possibilities of a new life elsewhere. He hits the road, not really knowing where he’s going, or what possibilities he will find ahead. In Casper, Wyoming he enlists in the Army, is embraced by the kindness of strangers–who become his only real family–until he is required to report for duty at Fort Polk, Louisiana. His stint in the Army spans six years, including experiencing combat in the First Gulf War, Desert Storm. He returns to Wyoming with the intent to take-up his life where he’d left it, in Casper, amongst the love of his adopted family. But first, he must even a long-standing score he has with his father, still living in a “tin house” in Laramie.
The road home is not an easy one. The way back to the “world” is speckled with the discovery of a dog who, as all dogs, provide Diehl with the joy, comfort of unconditional love and perhaps guidance that only a dog can give. Diehl travels what is, at times, a dark road home–more in his mind, than in reality. Along the way he finds himself suspected of a horrendous deed; a prior unrequited love is explained; an old love is revisited; and, finally, Diehl must decide what the real meaning of “home” is.
“Big Diehl – The Road Home” contains tangential gay erotica.
Two nice reviews over on Amazon. And two other valued reviews at Literary Nymphs, and ebookaddict. And another, from Janna at E-Romance Reader. And a 5 Star review at Three Dollar Bill Reviews. Wow! Queer Magzine Online gave Diehl a very nice review.
