This was just jaw-droppingly, can't-put-it-down good. Brammer does an amazing job of taking these large existential questions and rooting them down in his own lived experiences--and doing so with compassion and deep insight. It's also just like... incredibly readable? Which sounds like a weird compliment but I seriously couldn't put it down the first day I picked it up. I was briefly worried that, as someone who reads Brammer's column, this would feel recycled, but it absolutely doesn't, and it's so healing and funny and delightful. A++ ( )

adult nonfiction/memoir (gay man from Oklahoma relates his experiences, including some traumatic homophobic incidents and sexual assault)

This isn't really a book you would casually pick up and read for funny stories, it is full of serious content that I hope will help a lot of readers. Brammer offers his own experiences rather than trying to provide advice (since everyone's situation will be different and he acknowledges that he is unqualified to answer some questions). ( )

i liked this more than i expected to, probably because this is more serious and well-written than i thought it would be. he discusses a lot here, and (seemingly) very honestly. it all ties in nicely together, and each essay also stands alone nicely. it's well done.

"I've come to understand...that race is a lie. But it's a lie like money is a lie, which means it's real, because it's a system. You can't really opt out of it. You have to play along with it to some degree..."

the perfect description of life under trump: "The apocalypse was everywhere." ( )

Audiobook read by the author

Subtitle: How to Come Out in a Walmart Parking Lot and Other Life Lessons

Brammer studied journalism and creative writing and landed a job writing an advice column for INTO, which was published by Grindr, the popular gay hook-up app. He wasn’t sure he was doing “the gay thing” right, or that he had any business giving advice, but hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained. His column, ¡Hola Papi!, took off like wildfire.

This collection of essays serves as a memoir and self-help guide to pressing questions about growing up, surviving break ups, finding love, and all the issues young people – both gay and straight – have to navigate in the process of becoming adults. He recounts his experiences in a small Oklahoma town, his horrible middle-school years, when he was bullied to the point where he considered suicide, his confusing teenage years in the closet, his awakening in college, and his eventual move to New York.

The beginning of each chapter poses a question asking for advice. There are some chapters where I wondered where his story was headed and if he’d ever connect to the question being asked. But Brammer’s honesty and empathy propelled me forward.

Brammer narrates the audiobook himself. He does a fine job, it IS his own story after all, and I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job of narrating it. I did read about half the book in text format, however. ( )

This is the most unusual advice column book I've ever read, and the most profound and profoundly amusing. The author, a gay man from rural Oklahoma, responds to pretty standard reader questions ("If something bad happens to me, can I still be mad about it years later?" "How do you keep chasing a dream when you're a failure?" "How do I forgive and forget?") with revelant anecdotes from his own experiences, and he doesn't stint on the sharing of pain and of embarrassing moments. It's also got a large vein of humor running through, and oh the humanity. It's a short and poignant arrow to the heart, very sharp on the need for self-examination, and very wise about love.

Quotes: “I have found that things beginning with a bang don’t usually end with one. Most of the time they spread out and cool off as a matter of entropy, as part of the grand cosmic plan that all things have to eventually become still.”

“I was having unexpected pangs of nostalgia for things I had hated. I missed them, I guess because I knew them, and that’s all that nostalgia requires of us.”

“What if I missed the act of loving – the moving through life while loving, the way of seeing myself while loving, the splendid shapes love makes of the world, the way it takes the mundane and twists it into something all together worthier?” ( )
