WEEKEND: Vancouver Sun Review

Jane and Susan Safyan June 2016

Me with WEEKEND’s editor, Susan Safyan, at the launch this week.

Today WEEKEND was generously reviewed in the Vancouver Sun by Tom Sandborn.

“…a tour de force…

Often enough, Hamilton suggests, this post liberation reality, while obviously a huge improvement on the fever swamps of homophobia and oppression that preceded it, is full of ordinary human heartbreak and betrayal, sorrow, tedium and flawed, triumphant love.

That recognition, and the lapidary prose Hamilton uses to embody and dramatize it make Weekend a remarkable, intricate and mature work of art.”

Oh my god, you guys. Dress like a book.

It would be impossible to tell you what a kick I get out of my publicist and literary sorts around Vancouver dressing like book covers. I’ll bet they had a hoot making these, and I surely wish I had been the photographer because I would have had such a gay old time.

Meantime, here’s what I look like when I wake up (or, really, pretty much anytime). If there was a book cover to match, the title would have to be: Slob. Has anyone written that title?

Hey! I looked for plaid book covers but nothing. Find me a book, folks?
