I was honored and humbled when the delightful Michael Graves informed me that we wanted to interview me for Lambda Literary Foundation. Michael Graves’ collection of short stories, Dirty One, was a finalist for best debut gay fiction at the 2012 Lambda Literary Awards. Dark, humerus and poptastic, it’s a collection everyone who grow up in the 80’s should be reading. Graves is currently working on his next book, which I have no doubt will take the literary world by storm. So of course, I was even more grateful that he took the time out of his busy writing schedule to not only read and interview me, but to review my debut novel, An Ordinary Boy.
“An Ordinary Boy is far from an ordinary debut. Brian Centrone treats us to a modern, genre-crossing, coming of age tale. Love, Facebook, Prada suits, text messages, family, HIV, gossip, hipsters, friendship. All is revealed with firm truth. An Ordinary Boy could be a manual for young gay men.” – Michael Graves, author of Dirty One
Thanks you, Michael! An Ordinary Boy is available to download as an eBook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers. The print edition can be purchased through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BAM, and wherever books are sold.
