I grew up in places much like the fictional town of Weston in my novel Atom Heart John Beloved. I always enjoyed reading books with the gay boy attracted to straight boy dynamic, and several of my stories deal with just that.From the Inside Flap:
"Using a wildly unique narrative voice, Atom Heart John Beloved is brave and distinctive. It's the most impressive piece of literate gay fiction that I've recently read.
"The character of John Parker is beautifully drawn, arrogant and conceited but also exposed and broken. My understanding and sympathy toward him fluctuated throughout the work. Particularly impressive are the passages where John denies particular feelings and we can feel the lies, but understand a truth hiding behind clouded eyes. This style of writing is not easily achieved.
"This book won't satisfy those looking for familiarly structured m/m romance. I describe it as a detailed character study ensconced in a coming-of-age love story. Atom Heart John Beloved does many things well, but conveys best the love John feels for Nathan and how transformative that becomes. It will drag you through the range of emotions and includes themes both within and beyond the story that could make for tough going.
"It's rare to find myself so engrossed in a novel. Luke Hartwell had me up late into the night devouring this book from cover to cover. It would make an excellent group read or book club title with plenty here to talk about. I can see why it is making "underrated" lists.
"A re-read is guaranteed. I give it 5 stars and look forward to more of Luke's work."- Rick, Goodreads
