SUMMARY All Together

SUMMARY All Together ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Dirk Vanden ß 9 SUMMARY READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ß Dirk Vanden Trilogy ALL IS WELL then picks up the tale of Bill Thorne’s brother Robert who raped Bill as a teenager bringing all of the major characters back together for a truly climatic and thrilling ending. Kudos to loveyoudivine Alterotica for re releasing Dirk Vanden s All trilogy I Want It All All Or Nothing and All is Well in one combined book The three stories stand alone each told from the first person viewpoint of a different character however common characters and a couple of common events link them together The first version was released before the Stonewall Riots and to uote Dirk My books weren t considered worthy of editing when they were first published We were lucky just to get the books published and to get a few bucks for an outright sale Drugs feature unapologetically strongly throughout Both the upside the euphoric feeling that you had all the answers understood the essence of life and the universe and then the downside as reality stabbed euphoria in the back and painted black shadows around everything Apparently one publisher wanted Dirk to apologise for all the drug use in his books but as he explained it to me in an email We were illegal immoral perverts in those days and anything we could do to our heads to keep from thinking how terrible we were just to have sex with each other and how even terrible we were to write about it As a result I tried marijuana mescaline and LSD and discovered that they opened doors in my mind Drug use in Gay bars in the 60s and 70s was as common as beer and cigarettes and of course like nicotine and alcohol the drugs were addictive The books are set solidly in the late sixties early seventies an era famous for its music its hippies and its drug taking but still a time when homosexuality was illegal in most States The times they were a changing though Chuck the son of the last book s protagonist sees it as a time when sex was not a big deal and who you did it with was almost irrelevant In each story a man who always thought of himself as straight discovers he is happier being gay Remember that in those days this was a fate considered far worse than death Those who identified as such were hounded by the law consigned to the depths of hell by religion rejected by family and rebuffed by their peers Making an apology is another theme in common The viewpoint character has to acknowledge and seek forgiveness for a hurtful act Until this is done the character can never find peace within himself So let s get into the stories themselves If the concept of golden showers and other such things turns you off don t read this trilogy If you don t like learning about what it was like to be gay back in the 1970 s don t read this trilogy If politically incorrect sections like thisGay guys are the most bewildering people on earth One minute they can be so damned pleasant and then turn right around and be the bitchiest bastards you ve ever seen It s like they all had split personalities I kept remembering that kid I d picked up in Nevada and the Jekyl Hyde thing that happened to him I don t know it s like gay guys live on a tightrope or something you never know what s going to set them off Like a guy would come in and order his drink and usually he d be smiling and happy saying hi to everyone and he d pick out a spot to stand and display himself and cruise but then maybe half an hour later you d hear him snapping at people swearing or go storming out shoving people out of his way And who knows what the hell happened Maybe he cruised someone and got turned down or maybe he thought things weren t happening fast enough or got hungup thinking nobody wanted him Or you re down at one end of the bar and a guy wants to talk and someone else goes down to the other end wanting a drink and no matter what you do then you re wrong they act like you re insulting them both by not being in two places at once Or if you re out of the one kind of beer a guy likes it s like you ve said something against his mother offends your sensibilities don t read these stories If reading about rape upsets you again don t start reading While there is a Happy Ever After for each if you re looking for a sweet mm romance don t read All Together Are you getting the picture yet However if you want an honest no holds barred look at the scene back then check it out The background is painted around a basic plot of what happens to three different straight men involved in the rape of a gay man passing through town The second story All or Nothing runs in parallel to I Want it All The first chapters cover the same territory but it s seen from a different point of view Being a painter himself Dirk has a very observant eye He remarked to me in an email My head works differently somehow I see than other people I don t know what that means I ve always thought of it as paying attentionHere s an exampleThey were all fascinating to watch the way most of them tried to look so casual they really worked at it leaning against the wall or the bar or the pool table in the alcove in just the right stray gleam of light to show off their baskets I learned many new words that night They were posing in every sense of the word some of them not just for a possible trick but for themselves I got the feeling that if anything happened to disturb the pose they wouldn t be able to function until they got back into it Once again he is also not afraid to make some statements about being gay and what it meansAt any rate I learned that night that there were almost as many types as there were gay men Apparently something had changed since I d first heard about fairiesand remember this was written back in the seventies Dirk via his character has some interesting takes on marriage tooMaybe someday the laws and ideas about marriage will change also and when that happens maybe it won t be impossible to have both a wife and a family and a male lover friend all at the same timeand earlier in a description that parallels his own relationship with his partner who died in the AIDS epidemicGay marriages just don t work Bill The only ones that do are where they re not really lovers you know Not in the sense of a husband and wife at least They re friends Each one does his own thing for sex but they live together as friendsThis is backed up by his thoughts about why the character s marriage didn t workthe part of the female personality that to me made females unattractive a blind preoccupation with two people getting together in a marriage and devoting their entire lives to itIn his recent interview on Lambda Literary Dirk commented that he wrote the stories to say It s okay to be Gay There are those who believe that Gay Liberation started at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village on June 28 1969 That is like believing that a flower can blossom without having been planted Most of Richard Amory s and my books were published before Stonewall I would like to think that all those Gay dirty books were the fertilizer to make the Gay flowers grow All is Well the final story in the trilogy is different It s a lot cerebral for a start A lot of the action takes place inside the hero Bob s head Being the son of a Mormon Minister for Bob religion played a large part in his upbringing I ve read two other books that use this religion as part of the plot James Buchanan s Hard Fall and ZAMaxfield s The Pharaoh s Concubine While these two authors may have done meticulous research they don t capture that overwhelming feeling of guilt and stultifying constriction of attitudes and beliefs that Dirk conveys so well having been brought up a Mormon himself The trilogy as a whole is uncompromising All Together is by no means an easy read but worth it in the end Dirk s writing makes you care even when the guys are at their worst wallowing in their misery particularly the last story You just want Bob to break out of his funk I m not a fan of paranormal and this is a good example of what you can do without resorting to that level of fantasy We all have the capacity to do these things ourselves Be the strong invincible vampire the werewolf that can change to a form that can vanuish its enemies and we can all harbor the demon from hell within In some ways All is Well covers the steps of the archetypal hero s journey complete with the wrong goal the black moment and the mentor in this case drugs As in all such journeys the hero has to reach deep inside himself to find the solution to his predicament and confront his worst fears in doing soI had created the problems myself however childish or ill advised I had been and now I had to solve those problems myselfI don t know whether this was intentional on Dirk s part to follow Joseph Campbell s prescription but there are definitely elements there There s even the symbolism of the epiphany happening on Easter Sunday when the hero leaves his past behind and is reborn complete with the biblically significant three day turnaround from the time he leaves San Francisco and returns None of these literary elements intrude on the narrative Many readers may not even see the story at this level but I enjoyed All is Well that much after I recognised what had happened Another theme that ran through this story wasI had to keep an open mind adjust myself to the changes in the worldThe world was definitely a changing Another book that came to mind as I read was Andrew Holleran s The Beauty of Men Set in the nineties after AIDS had decimated the gay population the different scenes in steam baths bear comparison Although there are two very different establishments in All is Well neither have that pathetic lost uality that imbues Holleran s classic In Dirk Vanden s timeHere there were dozens of men wandering around most of them young and many of them very attractive manly looking well muscled with white towels narrowly wrapped around trim tanned waists One or two I saw were clean shaven and short haired but most of them had long hair moustaches sideburns many with full luxuriant beardsWhile in Holleran s book the middle aged Lark describes it thusDriving to the baths in 1983 was like going to Valhalla he thinks as he walks down the hall Going to the baths in 1995 is like driving to have his tires rotated and oil changedIn the end the title of the last segment of the trilogy takes on a new triple edged meaning as the different worlds collide and become one Not only do the three characters come together but for Bob the hero of All is Well all the facets of his personality converge as well Very neatly done There is almost a messianic fervor in the closing pages The certainty hippies had in the seventies that a New Age was coming The Age of Auarius Forty years on we can see that unfortunately the Roberts of the world didn t uite lose their grip And while the Bobs may no longer be jailed for their sexuality there is still room for change to happen Dirk s writing style is fluid his dialogue natural and his characters are vivid It s great to see the trilogy re edited to tidy up a few problems and published with a great new cover based on one of Dirk s own paintings Again congrats to loveyoudivine Alterotica for recognising what should be seen as one of the building blocks of gay fiction No Good Deed Mark Taylor #1 picks up the tale of Bill Thorne’s brother Robert who raped Bill as a teenager bringing all of the major characters back together for a truly climatic and thrilling ending.

SUMMARY All Together ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Dirk Vanden ß 9 SUMMARY READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ß Dirk Vanden Story of Bill Thorne the best friend of Warren Miller as he struggles to deal with his self image as a man of action and reconcile that with his feelings for other men The third and final part of the. Warning a few spoilers aheadReaders who missed the 1960s and early 70s the Summer of Love the Age of Auarius and those who can t remember the spirit of that time need to read the All trilogy by pioneer gay writer Dirk Vanden Richard Fullmer He explains certain things in an introduction to I Want It All the first novel in the set In 1969 when the book was originally written condoms were for heterosexuals and fetishists Real Men didn t wear rubbers The characters in the story engage in high risk sex without batting an eye In those days no homo sex was really safe but we naively believed that anything we caught from crabs to syphilis could be easily cured Hindsight as they say is perfectThe author goes on In those days Nixon was president Reagon was governor of California and I was very much the Angry Young Disenfranchised Gay Man on a Mission with a forum my books were popular and I was committed to aggressively telling it like it is Drugs fetishes fisting and all We were still illegal it wasn t until 1976 that California decided consensual homosex wasn t a punishable crime And homosexuality had only been removed as a mental illness from the standard diagnostic manual for psychiatrists in 1973Dirk Vanden s trilogy of novels follows an interrelated cast of characters The men at the center of each novel undergo considerable internal transformation before they can admit their sexual attraction to other men even to themselves Violent repulsion toward homosexuality especially man to man is shown to be the standard reaction of normal people In some cases disgust and outrage are shown to be closely related to lustWhile the culture at large was hostile and dangerous to gay men a small section of the porn publishing business catered to them by producing fiction that was assumed to be disposable one handed reading Dirk Vanden wrote about the coming out process in this context and incorporated elements of his life in novels that are necessarily focused on hot sweaty sex As he explains in his introduction to the reprinted version he also had a real life Muse When I first wrote I Want It All in 1969 I had just met and fallen in love with a Gay man who looked enough like me to be my brother Many thought we were twins We were living together in San Francisco on Buena Vista Terrace overlooking the Castro The story was based on his favorite sex fantasy being gang raped by cowboys The gang rape of a male traveller outside a bar in a dead end town in Colorado at the beginning of the novel seems all too realistic and representative of the hypocrisy of the era Luckily for the victim one of the rapists is remorseful enough to help him leave town as uickly as possible What follows is an odyssey in which Warren the remorseful narrator finds his way through an actual and metaphorical desert to the barely hidden gay community of San FranciscoConsidering the socially unacceptable status of homosex at the time it stands to reason that the characters in Dirk Vanden s work who break through their own inhibitions to reach for this forbidden fruit would also discover polamory mind expanding substances mostly illegal then and now and even incest in the form of consensual sex between adult brothers These novels combine a folksy straightforward style and a certain joyful innocence with scenes from a lifestyle that still looks radical compared with the Happy Ever After endings of contemporary gay erotic romance These novels show the current reader what was lost when some gay men especially white professionals gained suburban respectabilityThe third novel in the trilogy All Is Well has the most depth and suspense Although it includes explicit sex it seems at first to be a horror novel about an upright Mormon husband and father in Utah who is being stalked by someone who knows things about his family and especially about his teenage son who like other teenagers has become a mystery to his parents Robert the thirty something businessman who fathered a child before he was fully an adult himself discovers that his bland middle class image is a hollow shell and that he doesn t know himself any better than he knows his son his wife or the five year old twin daughters that she conceived by another man On a fateful Easter Sunday Robert is tempted by a ruggedly handsome stranger that he meets apparently at random on the plane that brings him home from a business trip Robert undergoes a spiritual and emotional ordeal which enables him to remember a traumatic event in his past which involved his brother Bill the ringleader of the rape in the first volume Robert remembers that their father was a narrow minded patriarch in the most literal sense Along the way Robert discovers the counterculture of the 1960s through his son Chuck and reconceives the entire universe After Robert is found naked by Chuck who takes on a parental role by guiding his father through his first drug trip Robert has an epiphany All these years I d been trying to protect Chuck by never letting him see my naked body Always closing the doors wearing those ridiculous uncomfortable pajamas or my bathrobe or something Something covering up my terrible shameful body Why Why had I ever felt that my body was shameful or terrible God had made man in his own image His Own Image The idea seemed totally new to me although I knew I had known it all of my life For the men in Dirk Vanden s fictional universe coming to understand oneself reuires coming to know one s father one s son and one s brother There seems to be no other way to penetrate so to speak the mysteries of God These novels have the flavor of their time but they are also ahead of their time Even the briefest of male male hookups enable the participants to shed a suffocating masculine image without becoming feminine in any obvious way Love between men is shown to be exactly what a hate filled world needs In the 1970s or the 21st century it certainly couldn t hurt Siam in
