Free read Dance on My Grave Dance on My Grave Free download È 104 Aidan Chambers ¿ 4 Free download Dbreaking novel the love of sixteen year old Hal Robinson for self confident Barry Gorman is revealed through Hal’s own observations press clippings and the scattered notes of a social worker These various perspectives contribute to an extraordinarily sensitive portrait of the intensity of first love The Horn Book writes. Originally published in 1982 this British gay teen coming of age story was way ahead of its time in its depiction of young ueer characters who aren t in the least bit conflictedashamedscared of their sexuality In fact it s still matter of fact about the character s sexual identity than most ueer teen books out there today rather than making that facet of their identities and society s response to it the focus of the novel Chambers simply allows the story to unfold through the perspectives of Hal his social worker and the occasional news clipping The cultural references are probably bit dated for today s teens but I think any readers who have ever experienced or wanted to experience an all consuming love will relate to Hal s obsessive love for Barry and his struggle to find himself

Free read Dance on My Grave Dance on My Grave Free download È 104 Aidan Chambers ¿ 4 Free download “The author is marvelously gifted at suggesting the ecstasy and insecurity that accompany new love including its emotional and physical social and spiritual aspects A major strength of the book the central conflict hinges not on the lovers being gay but on their having two idiosyncratic and contradictory personalities?. The only reason I gave this book a 4 instead of a 5 was because it got slow in places and I lost interest for a while about 34 of the way through However the ending is perfect and redeems any slow parts The author Aidan Chambers says it perfectly himself in an afterword to the book Dance on My Grave has sometimes been called a novel about being gay That is not how I think of it To me it is as much about obsessive emotion as anything else Hal is obsessed with Barry or rather what he thinks Barry is As it turns out Barry isn t the person Hal thought he wasIf that doesn t sum up the bulk of adolescent relationships I don t know what does This is a book about love codependency longing and blossoming sexuality Mostly though it s about relationships and making sense of them In my own humble view this occupies something like 98% of the emotional and mental space of teenagers Maybe it s 90% for adults My point is that Aidan Chambers is still one of my favorite authors because he writes about all of that messy stuff that happens between people that stuff that doesn t fall neatly into labels like gay or love or boyfriend or girlfriend In the process of dealing with all of this stuff though his characters grow and inevitably uncover deeper and wiser parts of themselves
