Shipwrecked [A+]
Author: Mathis B. Rogers

… this story dealt with romance and the familial repercussions of being gay in contemporary society…more of a domestic fantasy than a sexual one, though there was a lot of sex (they say “I love you” over 50 times.) Kris, the young narrator, has been living with Brad, his lover, for two years, but Brad’s parents haven’t realized their son is gay and that Kris is not “just” a roomate. When Brad’s family invites the two to spend the weekend on their boat, they reluctantly, agree, knowing how hard it will be to keep it a secret. Complicating matters is Chad, Brad’s identical twin brother, who has also been asked along, and complicating things further is the freak storm that strikes, washing the boat ashore on a desert isle. (Stop singing the “Gilligan’s Island” theme.) The rest of the story deals with the aftermath, the “coming out” of the young couple, and how Brad’s parents and twin brother react to this.

It’s hard not to like this story even if you don’t like gay fiction, because the characters were simply so *nice.* I felt I knew them as neighbors. There was even a touch of sly familial sexual humor running throughout:

Mr. Peterson turned in his seat and looked Brad up and down as
we climbed into the car. “No wonder those shorts had a hole in
them, son,” he said. “They’re so tight that they’ll split if you
get a boner. Couldn’t you find any decent clothes to wear?”

“Thanks, Mom,” Brad chided, before turning to his father.
“You shouldn’t talk like that in front of Mom, Dad.”

Mr. Peterson turned around and adjusted his seat belt. “Why
not?” he asked. “She knows what a boner is. Hell, if she didn’t
enjoy playing with mine, you wouldn’t be here.”

(No, there’s no incest!)

All in all, a feelgood story with roots in real life.


Brad talks Kris’s father, who is a helicopter pilot for Kilgore Search and Rescue, into flying the couple out to Kilgore Island to celebrate their second anniversary.
