Book Review

"My Year of Living Heterosexually: And Other Adventures in Hell"
By Ronald L. Donaghe
Review by Duane Simolke

After reading and loving three of Ronald L. Donaghe's novels, I thought it would be interesting to read this book about a year that changed his life. Donaghe's autobiography reads like those novels, complete with vivid descriptions and frequent dialogue. It also includes Donaghe's observations about homophobia, gays in the military, and the attempts of some gays to "go straight." Donaghe uses his experiences and those of the people around him to make those observations. However, he does so without turning this fast-paced narrative into an academic essay. I agree with the points that Donaghe makes, but even people who disagree can benefit from and enjoy this fascinating document about one man's experiences with marriage,
family, the military, self-loathing, and self-acceptance.
