Book Review: Let’s Hear It for the Boy – T.A. Webb

Journalist Paul Stewart was tasked to interview Atlanta’s legendary drag performer Auntie Social and he’s set to uncover more about the man behind all the facade. What he learned though was the story behind Matthew Trammel’s plight for AIDS leading him back to the latter’s bittersweet first love.

I’ve been broken into pieces by Mr. Webb after reading Second Chances and I haven’t quite recovered from it (I can’t even listen to At Last now without remembering the book and tearing up). In this very short, melancholic story – the author has once again proven his innate ability to shatter the epicenter of his readers’ emotions. I’ve read quite a lot of books relative to this short story’s theme but there’s only few that really gets to me. This shorts is one of ’em – bittersweet, poignant and simply beautiful.
