    1. It's something to find a brilliant new writer out there in the ever-growing published mass of Indies. It's another thing to know the writer's work from the past and be able to experience a voice that has grown wider and deeper and uniquely "his," just like the characters on the pages of Margins of Tolerance.Here are some of the notes I jotted down as I read:Damn, this makes me think twice about the guy jammed up against me on the plane out of Hartsfield.I'll bet a cool part time job would be as [...]


    2. Sometimes I get jealous of my gay writer friends. I think that compared to me at least, they have such a rich life - filled with things that I can never experience since my sexual orientation is NEVER called into question, never outlawed, and mostly never prosecuted. They have this whole world of things they can draw from to write about which I simply… lack.Then I think about the things they have to put up with which make their lives so full and rich, and I decide I’m not so jealous after al [...]


    3. Originally Published at Lambda LiteraryGay men are great travelers and Eric Sasson does them justice in his spirited new collection, Margins of Tolerance (Livingston Press). Provocative and unapologetic, the stories here offer a glimpse into the conflicted psyches of men in transition alongside moments of rare insight. There are shades of Holleran and Kramer here with prose by turns bombastic and elegiac.Peruvian hotel clerk Francisco desires much more than American TV or, even, the affections o [...]


    4. I have not finished this collection, but I've read four of its stories sporadically throughout the last two years. From what I've read, they are witty, urbane and biting truthful tales of the bittersweet yearnings of gay men, and of the human condition in general. Updated review:At once savage, cold, tender and a myriad of mixed emotions, Mr. Sasson’s “Margins of Tolerance” is a collection that deserves recognition. The best stories are the ones of where it seems the search for love and ac [...]


    5. Sasson writes the global experiences of American gay men with skill, and more importantly, humanity. This isn't a book for those who are squeamish about reading sexual interludes, but those who are willing to accept Sasson's unflinchingly honest portraits of gay life will find this to be a deeply touching and thought-provoking collection.
