  • Sweet, sexy, wise and thoroughly entertaining, this mytho-historical novel features two lovable apparitions from the late 1800s America. Their adventures in the novel-within-the-novel that the book is about interweave in a heart-warming story of youthful romance and mature, modern love. And the story offers an ageless life-affirming and gay-positive spiritual message  ...along with just a touch of the Twilight Zone.

    “There is a fresh naivete in [Toby Johnson’s] style that rings pleasantly in the ear, like the memory of a ‘boy’s book’ enthusiastically devoured at age 12. Against the sour punk of so much of today’s gay male fiction, Getting Life in Perspective is a treat.” —Marvin Shaw, reviewer
