"Provenzano accomplishes the seemingly miraculous task of spinning a yarn that is simultaneously meandering and as on-point as an arrow loosed from an over-taut bow. It’s one hell of a... More > trip from point A to point B, filled with rich vocabulary and occasional forays into clever wordplay." - Gay People's Chronicle "Beautifully, poetically written ... Cyclizen is unforgettable. Kent's look back on his younger days almost feels like a ghost story. The years covered in the book are a period that will indeed haunt us forever." - Bay Area Reporter "Like Jim Provenzano's two earlier novels, Cyclizen is about as far as you can get from the many safe and sanitary gay novels being cranked out nowadays. Like the wheels of a street-smart messenger's bike, the prose is fast, busy and sometimes jarring. Kent's real subject matter is not his own but our culture, relationships and our challenging times." - Mandate magazine< Less
